Add renovation policies to the Campus’ Green Building Practice.
Have a qualified sustainability representative on each campus committee participating in building design/construction, including the Chancellor’s Campus Sustainability Committee and Department buildings committees.
Publish a draft campus practice for Laboratory Ventilation Standards, optimizing for both safety and energy efficiency.
Initiate a Smart Lab Ventilation pilot program for at least one building on campus.
Complete the certification of 25 campus buildings under LEED for Existing Buildings.
Expand Smart Lab Ventilation Pilot to include multiple buildings, including new lab construction projects such as Henley Hall and Bioengineering.
Expand personnel resources at EH&S and Facilities to support the safe, efficient operation of smart labs on campus.
Obtain, in collaboration with other UCs, a CalOSHA variance for the safe operation of low-flow fume hoods.
Design, construct, and operate buildings, using a closed-loop process, calling for no waste in the construction process and building operation. Barriers at this point are knowledge, such as life-cycle data, and technology. Biomimicry is the impetus for this goal.
Striving for zero waste, pollution, and net habitat impact.
Establish a fully-integrated campus-wide Smart Lab Ventilation program/policy.
