Sustainability: Value of Good Design

Find out how the “typical details” provided to satisfy energy codes, protect clients and reduce liability actually relevant to sustainability—and why does it matter?

Description: 

Designers, practitioners, and builders rely on "typical details" to satisfy energy codes and green building programs, protect clients, and keep themselves out of trouble. But are these details actually relevant to sustainability—or are we just going with the program? 

This course will give you the "how" and "why" of key details for energy codes and green building. From the building envelope to structural systems and hot water heating/distribution, the difference lies in the details. Join us to discover the rhyme and reason behind key details, and improve actual efficiency and green value in your sustainable designs.

Learning objectives

Participants will be able to:

•    Provide better owner advocacy and control liability by identifying a collection of key details that must be integrated for a successful, sustainable project.
