So I’ve been a busy these last few weekends helping out with this project. It’s a new house/community space called “The Joinery” and @buildingculture is building it. They are in to framing and because it’s a #livingbuildingchallenge project they got a whole bunch of reclaimed really awesome lumber. The original plans called for more standard sized lumber though... so my buddy/neighbor asked me to help with a revised framing plan and detailing to accommodate the new lumber sizes. So yeah! I get to be a part of this amazing project too! Super excited to see how it turns out! Stay tuned, when the roof framing goes up it’s gonna be awesome!

GBA is proud to work with @pccmarkets , the first grocery store in the world to commit to developing stores to the Living Building Challenge Standard — congrats PCC! Link in bio. — Recalls GBA Associate Principal Brian Jonas: "I remember a strategic branding meeting back in 2016 when Graham Baba suggested that a Living Building Challenge Petal Certification would be a great fit for PCC. They already so carefully considered the products that went onto every shelf in the store - Why not put equal care into the materials from which the store was made? At the same time, we noted that this was one of the highest standards to achieve in the building industry, that we knew of few retail precedents, and that they would in fact probably be the first grocery store to seek the certification. Many clients would run the other way. Instead, the PCC leadership enthusiastically said, “Tell us more!” and then set about to dedicate the entire team to making it a reality." — Images: @tony.archie ...

Sustainability at our Alexander Valley Winery takes many forms. During the planning phase, we vetted more than 3,000 building materials and equipment choices for harmful chemicals. We reclaimed redwood from old wine tanks for siding and salvaged fallen oak trees in the valley for flooring and wall and ceiling paneling..

The image shows why the ambient temperature around a tree is so much cooler than standing in the sun.
Using a tree 10 meter in circumference (30 feet). The solar heat (red arrow), on this area is 450 Kilowatt Hours (kWh) ⚡⚡⚡of this, 160 kWh (beige arrow) is reflected back to the sky or retain in the soil,⚡⚡ 2kWh (green arrow) is used by photosynthesis by the tree, and the big surprise is 280 kWh is absorbed by the 400 liters (105 gallons) ⚡⚡👍👍🌟in transpiration given off by the tree (blue arrow) to keep itself cool / latent heat.
Why is this important?

Bottom line we need plants🌲, and lots of them 🌲🌱🌲🌱to keep the ambient temperature around us down, especially during extreme hot ☀️☀️☀️☀️days. Using greywater to grow plants solves two urban issues. A) cuts water consumption 💧and B) lowers urban heat island 🌡🌏when the plants convert all the greywater to transpiration by absorbing the solar heat / latent  #UrbanAgriculture #urbanForest #UrbanGarden #WasteReduction  #leedlandscape #leeddesign #leedarchitecture #ecofriendly #GreenBuilding #landscapearchitect #landscapeArchitecture #LEED  #GreenBuilding #greeninfrastrucure #livingarchitecture #LivingBuildingChallenge  #FutureH20 #Grey4Green  #climatemitgation #climatechange #urbanlifestyle #urbanHeatIsland.

Our sustainable journey is also about equal opportunity and diverse team members. We are so pleased to have Nans Brehmer, an apprentice carpenter with a diploma in Architectural Building Technology from BCIT,  as part of our talented and inspiring team. Nans has a great eye  for good Design detailing, and a personal interest in sustainable building which has been a perfect fit with our project vision. Gratitude goes out to all the amazing people that have been part of our project! 🙏🙏🌳@nido.design.inc @bernhardt_contracting @nannabuzz @hajo_me @victoria.drakeford #passive House #ResidentialConstruction #Construction #VancouverIslandConstruction #LivingBuildingChallenge #SustainableConstruction #DiversityInConstruction#climatechange #climate crisis #Sustainability #BCIT @rsbwood @jasonjfschmidt @longhousecedar.

Both sides of this yard use zero % tap / drinking water. One side is the "Brown is the new green" movement the otherside is the "Grey is the new green" movement. The grey side (green grass) also sequesters carbon, pollution, small particulate matter, and cools the environment through transpiration. (We turn off the water on half the lawn to demonstrate the differance) Bottom line. You can be environmental water conscious and still have a green lawn. #UrbanAgriculture #urbanForest #UrbanGarden #WasteReduction #leedlandscape #leeddesign #leedarchitecture #ecofriendly #GreenBuilding #landscapearchitect #landscapeArchitecture #LEED #GreenBuilding #greeninfrastrucure #livingarchitecture #LivingBuildingChallenge #FutureH20 #Grey4Green #climatemitgation #climatechange #urbanlifestyle #urbanHeatIsland ...
