    Product not yet rated Contains 2 Component(s)

    This course will compare and contrast IECC, ASHRAE, LEED, and other leading green standards that are designed to protect the health, safety, and welfare of the public.

    Green building and sustainable design are hot topics in the building design and construction industry. Beyond the hype, though there is a real advantage to employing many of the tactics espoused by these strategies, chief among these advantages is the ability to save money while saving the environment. Many standards have been written to codify these green approaches. ASHRAE has put out their 189.1 standard, and industry personnel are very familiar with LEED. Another entity that is pushing the boundaries of green and sustainable design is the IECC - International Energy Conservation Code. In this course we will explore the tenets and nuances of that standard. (Fundamental – 2 hours).

  • Building a Sustainable Future

    Product not yet rated Contains 2 Component(s)

    This one-hour course illustrates the importance of creating regenerative and resilient systems that increase the provision of ecosystem services.

    Over seven billion people now inhabit the earth, placing unprecedented pressure on the planet’s soils, waters, forests, and other natural capital. Most of the global population lives in urban areas, where their interactions with nature – and the benefits that these interactions provide – commonly occur in small-scale sites and residential settings. Most often, these landscapes are treated as inconsequential, and their full potential to mend humanity’s environmental offenses and improve our quality of life is commonly overlooked.

    This course illustrates the importance of creating regenerative and resilient systems that increase the provision of ecosystem services. Site sustainability is defined, and the value of education about sustainability and stewardship toward our built and natural ecosystems is discussed. The importance of instilling a love of nature in our children is examined, in addition to the monitoring and adaptive management of ecosystems so maintenance practices can be continually adjusted to improve the overall function of the site.
     
    The purpose of this course is to elevate the discussion of sustainability beyond “doing less bad” – attempting to merely slow down environmental degradation—to create regenerative sites that restore ecosystem function and rebuild the earth’s natural capital. (Fundamental – 1 hour).

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES

    Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:
    • Identify the resources and processes provided by ecosystems that sustain and fulfill human life.
    • Explain what a regenerative system is and discuss its importance for reversing the degradation of the earth’s natural resources.
    • Define “site sustainability” and discuss the three pillars of sustainability and their relationship to site development: planet, profit, and people.
    • Discuss the value of education about sustainability and stewardship toward constructed landscapes and natural ecosystems.
    • Discuss the importance of creating a love for nature in our children.
    • Describe the process of monitoring and adaptive management and how it can be used to adjust maintenance practices and prove the overall function of the site.

  • LID Technologies

    Product not yet rated Contains 2 Component(s)

    This course will provide an overview and introduction into the philosophy, objectives, various design approaches, economic and environmental benefits, and management practices of low-impact development (LID).

    A low-impact development (LID) design approach is defined as a combination of hydrologically functional site design with pollution prevention measures to compensate for land development impacts on hydrology and water quality. This course will provide an overview and introduction into the philosophy, objectives, various design approaches, economic and environmental benefits, and management practices of low-impact development. Specifically, this course will demonstrate how to develop land and maintain the pre-development hydrologic regime by using current structural and non-structural storm water management technological approaches.
