3.1 sustainable sites

3.1.1 site selection

Site no. 15, guangqu road, chaoyang district (the project is located in the a4-4 plot of the site) is the former site of Beijing chemical industry factory. The site scope starts from east fourth ring road and baiziwan east road in the east, reaches to guangqu road in the south, reaches to the middle road in the west, and reaches to the south road in the north. There are no environmental sensitive points in the project area, such as nature reserve, scenic spots and historical sites, and cultural relic protection units. The project is located in the urban area, which is a typical urban ecosystem. The vegetation is mainly artificial vegetation, and the plant species is mainly common trees, shrubs and lawns. There are no rare wildlife and state-level protected plants and animals, and there are no sensitive plants and animals.

Chemicals discharged from the original site of the project, the Beijing chemical plant, caused cumulative pollution in the soil. After the first-level development of the land and the relocation of the plant, the contaminated soil was left on the site. The site was found to be contaminated with arsenic, mercury and cadmium. The specific treatment scope of soil pollution in the project is determined according to the monitoring site location, health risk impact and the spatial arrangement of production facilities or workshops historically involved with the pollutant. The site no. 15 of guangqu road (the project is located in the a4-4 plot of the site) needs to be treated with a soil area of 3.38 hectares and a total soil volume of 44,900 cubic meters, including 1.28 million cubic meters of heavily polluted soil and 43,600 cubic meters of lightly polluted soil. According to the environmental assessment report of the site of the former Beijing chemical plant and the remediation plan of the contaminated soil of the former Beijing chemical plant, the project was carried out by a company with relevant professional qualifications to clear and remove the site at no. 15 guangqu road, in which the heavily polluted soil was safely disposed of by landfill, while the lightly polluted soil was disposed of by landfill. According to the remediation and acceptance report issued by the Beijing academy of environmental protection science, the clearance of site 15, guangqu road (including the a4-4 plot of the primary school project) has met the requirements set forth in the remediation plan for contaminated soil from the former Beijing chemical plant.

3.1.2 greening and permeable ground

Jinmaofu primary school project covers an area of 3140 m2, the red line covers an area of 20367.3 m2, and the green area covers an area of 11939.5 m2. VP grass planting circle pavement turf area of 267 m2, outdoor permeable surface area ratio up to 70.85%. At the level of outdoor greening, jinmaofu primary school is 25% higher than that of Beijing. Meanwhile, the green area of the roof is all planted roof.

3.1.3 roof greening

Roof greening can improve the appearance of the urban environment, relieve the atmospheric dust, purify the air, alleviate the urban heat island effect, the role of heat insulation on the roof, reduce the use of air conditioning, energy saving and other functions

There are many provisions in LEED on greening impacts, such as: SS C5.1 requires the use of place and at least 50% of the outdoor site area or 20% of the site area suitable for plant restoration and protection (roof greening can be included in the calculation if the two are larger); SSC5.2 required green land rate is 25% higher than that of Beijing (roof greening can be calculated); SS C7.2 requires that at least 50% of the roofing be planted roofing, and if 100% of the greening roofing area is planted roofing, innovation points can be obtained 1. Therefore, planting roof is considered to be adopted in all parts of the roof of this project that can be afforested except the equipment area.

3.1.4 construction of public transport

The bus system in the region includes rail transit, large station express, bus line and other forms, and is basically laid along the east third ring road, east fourth ring road, guangqu road, south mofang road, west dawang road and other traffic trunk roads, with a large number. There are 6 bus routes within 500m from the main entrance and exit. The bus routes are named as no.11, no.23, no.35, no.348, no.513 and no.541. The name of the bus station is: da jiao ting qiao west station.

In addition, there is the subway entrance and exit of line 7 at the intersection of guangqu road and baiziwan east road. The distance between stations of line 7 is about 1.5 kilometers, which belongs to the line with short interval. It is planned to open in 2014.

3.2 water-saving scheme

The Beijing municipal water authority said in May that the city's per capita water resources had fallen to 100 cubic meters, well below the internationally recognized water shortage threshold of 1,000 cubic meters per person, and equal to 1/10 of the international water shortage threshold. Making full use of water resources is the focus of the Beijing area, especially the green schools, and one of the important ways to ease the water stress.

LEED has higher requirements for water-saving appliances. The amount of water saved by water-saving appliances is at least 20% less than the amount of water used by LEED as the reference standard. For water-saving appliances to obtain LEED platinum certification, the amount of water saved by water-saving appliances is required to be higher. Water-saving appliances meeting LEED standards were selected for the project, as shown in table 3.

Table 3. Parameter requirements of water-saving appliances

Type Instruments Water parameters
Sanitary ware Big toilet ≤6L/3L
urinal ≤3L
tap ≤1.9 l/min/time consumption of induction faucet shall not exceed 1L
shower ≤8 l/min
Water appliances The washing machine Water consumption per cycle: <1L/L
A rack dishwasher < 3.785 L/rack
The ice maker Ice preparation >79.37 kg: <75.7 litres /45.36 kg
Ice preparation <79.37 kg: <113.56 l /45.36 kg
Electric steamer 7.57 l/h

The project USES municipal water as a source of green irrigation and flushing water. The annual water consumption from non-traditional water sources is: 4,276.97 tons/year for washing sanitary appliances; Green irrigation 628.09 tons/year. The utilization rate of non-traditional water sources reached 60.49%. In addition, the project USES sprinkler irrigation and drip irrigation water-saving technology to save green irrigation water.

3.3 energy and atmosphere

3.3.1 design of envelope structure

The basis of the design of the envelope structure of this project is mainly based on the minimum building energy consumption requirements of LEED.

1) external wall: heat transfer coefficient ≤ 0.32w /(m2·K), equivalent to 95mm extruded polystyrene plate;

2) external window: heat transfer coefficient ≤ 1.80w /(m2·K), shading coefficient ≤0.35;

3) roof: heat transfer coefficient ≤ 0.25W/(m2·K); Equivalent to 120mm thick extruded polystyrene plate;

4) total window-wall ratio of each orientation ≤ 0.4.

3.3.2 exhaust heat recovery

The project adopted a total heat recovery fresh air unit, including medium and effective filtration section, surface cooling section, wet film humidification section and heat recovery section. The heat recovery rate was 60%, and the filter was F7 medium and effective filter, with an efficiency of 65%. After installing the rotary full heat exchanger, the annual operation cost saved is about 35397.96 yuan, and the static investment payback period is 6.82 years. If add heating boiler, cooling tower, circulating water pump, cold coil pipe and other components to save investment and operating costs, the static investment payback period will be shortened. The designed service life of the heat recovery wheel shall not be less than 10 years.

3.3.3 solar photovoltaic power generation

In recent years, solar photovoltaic power generation technology has developed rapidly. China's photovoltaic industry started in the 1970s and entered a period of stable development in the 1990s, with the output of solar cells and modules gradually increasing year by year. After more than 30 years of efforts, it has ushered in a new stage of rapid development. There are very favorable natural conditions for the development and utilization of solar energy in Beijing. Through the survey of solar energy resources in Beijing, it is found that the taienerg resources in Beijing are relatively rich areas, with the annual sunshine hours reaching about 2600 hours and the annual cumulative solar radiation amount reaching 5227.14 MJ/m2. In addition, the solar energy resources in all parts of Beijing have a stable degree and belong to the stable grade, which provides a very favorable natural condition for the use of solar energy in Beijing. Therefore, the prospect of developing solar energy resources in Beijing is good.

LEED for School also regulates the use of renewable energy: different scores are given for the proportion of electricity generated by renewable energy in a building's total electricity consumption. At the top of the vehicle shed, the project adopts solar photovoltaic power generation with a power of 235Wp solar cell modules. 11 modules are connected in series to form a photovoltaic square array, which consists of 4 photovoltaic squares. The power of each photovoltaic square array is 2.585kwp, and the total power of solar cell modules is 10.34kwp. The annual power generation of the photovoltaic system is 11585.62kwh, and the annual power consumption of the building design is 310920kWh. Therefore, the generation of solar photovoltaic power system of the project accounts for 3.73% of the total power consumption of the building.

4. To summarize

So far, there are only two leed-school programs registered in China, but no School has passed LEED certification. Leed-school accreditation is still in its infancy in China, but green schools are gaining momentum. As the most influential green building certification system in the world, LEED certification will develop rapidly in China, with more and more School programs registering and obtaining leed-school certification.

However, due to the differences in national conditions, some provisions in the LEED certification system do not conform to the actual situation in China. Therefore, China's relevant professional and technical personnel need a lot of work to do, on the one hand, to understand the LEED certification system, flexible and efficient LEED certification system related items reflected in China's green building projects; More importantly, we should combine the specific conditions of our country, absorb and learn from the green building evaluation systems of various countries, including LEED, and form our own green building evaluation system applicable to different types of buildings.
