Sustaining sustainability
"Green design" may not be the buzzword it used to be, but with
solutions implemented years ago now bearing concrete results,
it may be poised for a new day in the sun By Kristin D. Zeit
In The Center for Health Design's column this month, Debra Levin describes The Center's
informal efforts to capture Healthcare Design Expo & Conference attendees' top issues of
interest in 2015. Among the findings, this one caught my attention: the return of sustainable
design as a key topic that keeps our industry up at night. It came in at number three (see page
24 for the top two). In 2014, sustainability wasn't even included as a topic to choose from.
I get that. Sustainability and green design used to be all anyone talked about, but that's
fallen off somewhat. That's partly because many of the movement's tenets have now become
baseline expectations for building design and partly, I'm sure, because there are always
sexy new topics that come along and grab more attention. Yet clearly, genuine concern for
sustainable design hasn't gone away, and may be growing. Can we call it a comeback?
What we do have now that we didn't have a decade ago are lessons coming to light from
healthcare facilities that implemented ambitious green initiatives (geothermal heat pumps,
energy recovery air-handling units)-lessons with dollar signs, in terms of return on investment,
attached. Great strides continue to be made in reaching lofty goals, such as achieving net-zero
energy status, as technologies and systems improve, proliferate, and become less expensive to
implement. In an age when cost savings, efficiency, and public perception are critical factors for
success, perhaps a renewed interest in sustainable issues isn't so hard to understand.
People like Kim Shinn of TLC Engineering for Architecture (his official firm title is "senior
sustainability wizard") have never stopped beating that drum. During a session at the 2015
HCD Expo & Conference, Shinn shared truly fascinating insight on what might have happened
if two already impressive LEED-certified projects had targeted net zero, as well. Some of those
lessons are described briefly in our show review feature in this issue ("That's a Wrap," page
26). And if you haven't yet read your December 2015 issue of
Healthcare Design, don't miss Senior Editor Anne DiNardo's
excellent piece "Hitting the Mark," which details more bottomline outcomes from a few of the most high-profile green
building efforts in healthcare from the past 10 years.
If sustainability has lost its luster in determining your own
design goals lately, and you've mostly continued to rely on the
same old strategies and patterns, it's time to take another look.
The potential-and the payoff-are coming into focus. HCD
