  • Green Design: Introduction to High Performance Building Design (Based on LEED v4)

    Product not yet rated Contains 2 Component(s)

    In this course, we will look at the ways buildings use energy and how buildings can be designed for high energy performance. It is important that architects and designers understand and are aware of the resources and methods available for improving building designs in the future. A major piece to understanding sustainable buildind design is also understanding the requirements of the Energy and Atmosphere category of LEED v4 Building Design and Construction (BD+C).

    There is consensus among the majority of scientists that the climate of the earth is changing in the direction of higher temperatures and that some of the change is anthropomorphic (caused by human activity). This course is intended to address that portion of the human contribution to climate change that is related to energy use in buildings.

    At the conclusion of this course, you will be able to:

    • Explain and identify how building design and construction can impact the health and wellbeing of the people within and the surrounding environment
    • Define and identify energy use and it’s effects on buildings and the safety and welfare of the people within and around
    • Describe the three options for Daylight LEED v4 credits and their impacts on the environment
    • Explain the proper use and storage of refrigerants used in vapor compression systems ensures a safe environment for building occupants and the environment.
    • Describe and identify the process to ensure that a building is operating at peak efficiencies to maintain a safe environment for people and the surrounding area
    • List the LEED requirements for the facility requirements and operations maintenance plan
    • Identify and explain the LEED Credit and prerequisites for Energy and Atmosphere

  • Green Design: Sustainable Lighting Design (Based on LEED v4)

    Product not yet rated Contains 2 Component(s)

    In this 3-hour course, you learn professional lighting design and what tools to use, and are shown how these tools can be applied to real life examples.

    Light is the fourth dimension of architecture. It is molding material in the hands of the lighting designer (architect, interior designer, engineer, etc.), like clay in the hands of the sculptor. Like the sculptor, you need the right tools. The bonus is that good lighting design also yields great energy savings. In this course, you learn professional lighting design and what tools to use and are shown how these tools can be applied to real life examples. In addition, you learn about the different types of LEED credits and how those can be earned and applied to lighting design. This program may be registered with the AIA/CES for continuing professional education. As such, it does not include content that may be deemed or construed to be an approval or endorsement by the AIA of any material of construction or any method or manner of handling, using, distributing, or dealing in any material or product. Questions related to specific materials, methods, and services will be addressed at the conclusion of this presentation. (Intermediate - 3 hours).

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  • Green Design: Sustainable Daylighting Design (Based on LEED v4)

    Product not yet rated Contains 2 Component(s)

    Daylighting can be one of the most difficult “tools” in the lighting designer’s toolbar. Adding sustainability into the mix carries its own considerations and obstacles. In this course, we will concentrate on pragmatic daylight design and how sustainable daylighting elements can be used efficiently in lighting design projects.
