Slide 1:

ECove A SUSTAINABLE, POSITIVE IMPACT URBAN NEIGHBOURHOOD FOR SURREY B.C.

Slide 2:

Objectives Create a state-of-the-art urban agricultural community that is in harmony with the surrounding environment Build a holistic neighbourhood that reflects the demographics of an urban center Be a comprehensive model of environmental and social sustainability Set forth a business model that provides for financial support of permaculture research and development

Slide 4:

Vision Statement Our vision is to build a full-featured, human-scale settlement in which human activities produce a minimal to zero carbon footprint, enhance the natural surroundings and enrich the quality of life for residents of all ages.

Slide 6:

Change Through Design: a guiding principal “ Whether we realize it or not, we live in a designed world. The question is: will this be a design for destruction or for a sustainable new world that we can safely hand down to our children and our children’s children? Massive change is not about the world of design it's about the design of the world.” Bruce Mau

Slide 7:

Designed for Community and Social Interaction Interlocking community ‘pods’ with activity hub Central fire pits, outdoor cooking facilities, gathering places, cafe, playgrounds, outdoor multipurpose recreation pad, dining pavilions

The physical design of ECove is based on the concept of people as custodians of the ecosystem, creating a strong sense of community and social responsibility (promoting peace)

Slide 11:

Slide 13:

Designed for Fitness and Health Biking, walking, jogging paths – no cars within residential pods Sports and fitness facilities (indoor and outdoor )

Slide 15:

Designed for Fitness and Health Biking, walking, jogging paths – no cars Sports and fitness facilities (indoor and outdoor) Salt swimming pool (in and out) and spa Preventative and Complementary Health Care Center Raised garden beds, vegetable gardens Vertical farm for spray free produce Organic restaurant

Slide 17:

Slide 18:

Designed to Integrate and Foster the Arts Multimedia arts center in community building Art, dance, music, drama, film and design facilities for all ages Interactive art and art/dance/music etc. classes

Slide 20:

Designed for Stewardship of Nature Gardens, raised, vertical, traditional Green roofs Energy Eff. homes On-site waste and water management Composting Renewable energy Aim for zero waste and zero carbon footprint

RENEWABLE ENERGY:

RENEWABLE ENERGY e.g. Solar Wind Geothermal Hydrogen Ocean (tidal/wave) Biomass Hydropower Radiant Flexibility of design and ongoing R&D to incorporate new technologies when available – e.g. MIT research uses sun's energy to split water into hydrogen and oxygen gases. Later, the oxygen and hydrogen is recombined inside a fuel cell to create carbon-free electricity. Projected to be available for commercial use within 10 years.

Slide 22:

Living walls and roofs - benefits Reduce the volume of stormwater Absorb pollutants, cool and clean rain water, decreasing thermal pollution and toxins Provide better insulation Reduce the urban “heat island” effect. Help insulate from noise Convert carbon dioxide from the air into oxygen that we can breath. Encourages biodiversity of plants and animals

Slide 25:

Designed for Sustainable Economic and Urban- Agricultural Activities Fish Farm (e.g. Baltimore Aquaculture - Baltimore Maryland, Fish Farm Supply Company – Guelph ON, AgriMarine Holdings/Middle Bay Sustainable Aquaculture Institute – BC)

Slide 26:

Vertical Tank Fish Farming Low maintenance Recycled water Controlled environment = high yeild (300lb/per tank) No waste product – fertilizer for gardens Allows oceans to recover High financial return

Slide 28:

Designed for Sustainable Economic and Urban- Agricultural Activities Fish Farm High Density Vertical Farming ( e.g.Valcent Verticrop - Vancouver BC and Terrasphere – Boston Massachusetts and Surrey BC)

Slide 29:

High Density Vertical Farming Valcent (B.C.) Small building equal to large farm capacity 95% less water No pesticides, herbicides, insecticides Year round growing season (30 crops vs. 2) Reduced transportation cost Small carbon footprint Increased nutritional value of produce

Designed to Resonate with Agenda 21 and local Surrey Agenda 21 Initiatives:

Designed to Resonate with Agenda 21 and local Surrey Agenda 21 Initiatives Mandate Summary: To protect the Earth’s natural ecosystems and the living things they contain To reduce human use of energy and raw materials as well as the production of pollution and waste To share opportunities and responsibilities more fairly between countries and between different groups within each country. * Social/Economic/Ecological integration *Note: Canada first signatory on Agenda 21

Designed to Incorporate Cosmic Geometry and Bio-mimicry :

Designed to Incorporate Cosmic Geometry and Bio-mimicry Fractals are mathematical equations used to generate shapes similar to the shapes found in nature The three transformations of fractal geometry are: Scaling (shrinking, growing) Rotations (spinning, orbiting) Translations (moving, positioning) Using fractals creates architecture that is robust, sustainable, interconnected, maintainable, harmonious and promotes a peaceful and loving environment in tune and in sync with nature.
