    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.

  • Increasing Building Energy Efficiencies: Policies and Practice

    Product not yet rated Contains 2 Component(s)

    This two-hour course will focus on specific LEED and sustainable design improvements in resources, specifically in the areas of water and energy use and efficiency.

    While LEED and sustainable design dominated the industry landscape in the 2000's, the last several years have witnessed a pivot to specific improvements in resources, specifically in the areas of water and energy use and efficiency. That bar has been raised through increasingly stringent standards in ASHRAE 90.1-2010 and 189.1-2011, as well as Federal mandates increasing in stringency from EPAct05 through EISA 07, Executive Order 13423, EO 13423 and EO 13514, and most recently 10 CFR 433: Energy Efficiency Design Standards for New Federal Commercial Buildings. (Fundamental – 2 hours).

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES

    Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:
    • Discuss the requirements of Federal building mandates and codes.
    • List the requirements of ASHRAE 90.1 and 189.1 standards, upon which most state and local codes are based and written.
    • Describe and appreciate the impact locally, nationally, and globally of these efforts and the trends towards increasing energy efficiency. competing interests globally between efficiency and a cleaner environment, and cheaper fuel and resulting pollution and associated deleterious effects.
    • Practically implement and adopt these requirements in building systems and design and construction strategies.

  • 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.
