While the price tag for the retrofit is high (about $18 million), the effects of the initiative will be significant, says Savan. « We willavoid over three million kilograms of carbon-dioxide greenhouse gas emissions per year as a result of this project, » she explains, adding that the sustainability project willalso lead to a savings of more than $1 million in energy and maintenance costs annually. « We want to bring all of our buildings into a very energy-efficient state, but it’s not going to happen overnight, » says Savan. « But our goal is not just to fixup buildings. It’s also to change people’s relationships with them. » To that end, the sustainability office has undertaken various initiatives, including one that encourages everyone at the university to switch off lights whenever leaving an empty 50 THE ROYAL ARCHITECTURAL INSTITUTE OF CANADA/L’INSTITUT ROYAL D’ARCHITECTURE DU CANADA room to help reduce electricity consumption by 10 per cent over the next five years. This comprehensive approach to sustainability is followed at the University of Calgary’s faculty of environment design (EVDS), which is based on a non-departmentalized model that « encompasses art and science, and explores with interest the spaces between the two, » according to the school. Its professors, who represent a range of academic disciplines from physics, chemistry, biology and botany to architecture, industrial design and philosophy, have a strong track record in areas related to environmental design and sustainability. Students enrolled in the faculty can pursue graduate degrees in architecture, planning, industrial, environmental and urban design, and environmental science. And, in the spring of 2005, a new academic chair in integrated design, funded by Calgary-based Haworth Inc. (which specializes in sustainable interiors), was established at EVDS to support research and teaching on the design and production of sustainable products, interiors, buildings and cities. « We take a holistic approach with sustainability, » explains Brian Sinclair, FRAIC, dean of the environmental design faculty. He says that approach extends beyond academia into the operation and infrastructure of the entire university. In addition to heading EVDS and teaching as one of its professors, Sinclair (who holds master’s degrees in architecture and psychology) also serves as special adviser on design to the president, Harvey Weingarten. Sinclair’s role includes monitoring, advising and guiding the university « on issues related to the design and planning of a more sustainable campus, » according to Weingarten. Working with Sinclair to ensure the U of C is a greener campus is EVDS colleague - chemist Dixon Thompson, a professor of environmental science - who serves as interim adviser to the vice-president of finance and services, and is responsible for implementing the university’s plan for an environmental management system. According to Sinclair, new buildings scheduled for construction over the next five years (including a library and an institute for sustainable energy, environment and economy), as part of a $750-million project, willadhere to
