The challenges
ID profession is awakening
 –Fit out and refit projects need to addresstheir environmental impact 
The Green Register
 –One day conference/SBSDay 3 workshop –to address some of the more pressingissues interior designers have to face.
But what are these issues?

ID Challenges Retrofit09/07/2012 © NGS 2012 Brian Murphy2
3 important issues
Damage Categories
 –Resource Depletion –Ecosystem Damage –Human health
The issues overlapThe choice we make influence all three

Resource Depletion
interior finishes are removed andreplaced frequently,
 –Retail interiors are designed, built, strippedand rebuilt every 5 to7 years –Office interiors can be stripped after everytenant and letting agent  –CAT A to CAT B to CAT A to CAT B

The building-fabric-only
needs to be competen
 –Or every refit would require buildingregulations applications, –Associated design and application fees
Increasing energy performancerequirements
 –Welcome, but who wants to have to pay –Would make refit progressively moreexpensive.

Design to reduce waste
Knowing the sizeof stuff Designing to avoid cutting anythingNo more settin out from centre andcutting at edgesNo off-cuts
 –(33% of waste stream)
No waste
 –(100m tonnes/annum)

Design to enable reuse

The RICS ‘Ska rating’
Environmental assessment methodaddresses refit better than any of theBREEAMtoolsit focuses on buildin fabric and thematerials that both IDs and Architectsspecify.follows the conventional approach
 –competent building, complimentary interiors
More importantly it addresses reuse of existing interior materials
 –reuse of reclaimed –rather than sending perfectly sound materialsto landfill.
Issues that need to beaddressed by the building:
G value & Solar gainsThermal massU value, k value, R valueecremen eayWind and airtightnessVapour permeabilityThermal breaksWeather tightnessInternal surface temperaturesI doubt many IDs want to get involved
Inadequate property?
No tenant/purchaser wants to buy into:
 –Property that needs completion as part o fit out 
part of tenant agreement 
Tenants would quite rightly expect acompetent building

Who pays?
If buildingrunning/heating/ventilating/cooling areart of their landlord areement 
 –there is no incentive to reduce runningcosts –unless they see a financial return for aconsumption reduction.

Carpets Insulate
Carpets may be insulating
 –effect ground floor only
they also hide thermal mass
 –that can have an effect on the overallenergy demands
Thin sheet flooring
 –will not hide thermal mass
Ceramic and stone have thermal mass
