Abstract
Green Campus Design for National Institute of Science and Technology: Implementing UI GreenMetric Criteria to Create Environmentally Friendly and Sustainable Campus

The National Institute of Science and Technology (ISTN) campus is a strategic location with a large green open space area. However, the ISTN campus has not been included in the ranking of the green campus category based on the UI GreenMetric. The UI GreenMetric is a set of guidelines for ranking environmentally friendly campuses based on six categories: Setting and Infrastructure (SI), Energy and Climate change (EC), Waste (WS), Water (WR), Transportation (TR), and Education and Research (ED). The purpose of this research is to transform the existing ISTN campus to make it fit the green campus criteria. The green campus master plan is created to increasing the score UI GreenMetric of the ISTN campus. The project is accomplished by conducting a site survey to determine the campus area and then analyzing the area parameters using ArcGIS, an application for making maps, analyzing data, and reporting the results. The design method applied after calculating the ISTN campus score is intended to increase the UI GreenMetric score of the campus and make it more environmentally friendly and sustainable. The design is prepared in Sketchup, an application used to produce 3D models. The result of this research is the total score of the UI GreenMetric analysis of the existing ISTN campus and the new ISTN green campus master plan design. This research is conducted with the hope that it will help the ISTN campus become an environmentally friendly and sustainable campus and qualify to enter the UI GreenMetric ranking.

Introduction

The National Institute of Science and Technology (ISTN) campus is an institute located in the Jagakarsa area, South Jakarta City. The ISTN campus has a large area of green open space, but it has not yet entered the UI GreenMetric World University Ranking. It is possible to enter the ranking by transforming the available green open space into a green campus area (Atici et al., 2020).

UI GreenMetric is a guide for ranking environmentally friendly campuses based on six categories: Setting and Infrastructure (SI), Energy and Climate change (EC), Waste (WS), Water (WR), Transportation (TR), and Education and Research (ED) (Suwartha and Berawi, 2019). According to the overall ranking for 2020, UI GreenMetric included 912 universities in 84 countries. The ranking criteria facilitate the design of new high-standard plans and concepts for universities and institutes (Binta and Maulana, 2021).

The aim of this study is to transform the ISTN campus into a green campus and enter the UI GreenMetric ranking, which requires analysis of the UI GreenMetric score and design of a green campus master plan to increase the UI GreenMetric score of the campus. To improve education well-being by considering environmental sustainability is the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) (Berawi, 2021). The universities and institutes are enabling to lead the way in SDGs (Parvez and Agrawal, 2019).

A green campus concept is adopted by many universities and institutes. Managing such campuses systematically, the university or the institute is expected to create a place that refers to green campus concept (Santoso et al., 2017; Dagili?t? et al., 2018; Binta and Maulana, 2021). In this study, UI GreenMetric criteria will be used as a set of basic parameters to design a sustainable and environmentally friendly campus. The high education contributions to achieve sustainable development can be obtained via education, buildings, and research (Abdallah, 2018). The importance of sustainable development is to protect the environment (Russ et al., 2018; Le, 2018).

The UI GreenMetric score analysis of this study is based on the 2021 UI GreenMetric guidelines, assisted by ArcGIS, an application for making maps, analyzing data, and reporting the results, used to calculate the required area and Sketchup, an application to produce 3D models, used to design a green campus master plan.

This research of the green open space of the ISTN campus area includes analysis of various aspects, such as waste management, energy and water use, transportation, and education facilities, according to the criteria of the UI GreenMetric.

Conclusion

        The green campus master plan design proposes to implement 15 infrastructures at the ISTN area: a park, jogging track, waste management unit, wastewater treatment facility, infiltration wells, a recycling bin, bike parking, smart card parking, temporary waste storage, solar panel streetlamps, handwashing and sanitation facilities, fire extinguishers, a hydrant, a panic button, and a drinking water fountain at all building. The new design yields 4,150 total UI GreenMetric score (an increase by 1,300 points) to the campus area and makes the ISTN campus more environmentally friendly and sustainable compared to the existing design, which yields 2,850 points.
