Helen Chen, Ph.D., PE
The building "green" movement is growing at an explosive rate in the U.S. in recent years as a result of increased demand for natural resources. The goal of building "green" is to reduce the life cycle cost of buildings while maximizing health and environmental performance. This course is based entirely on the publication "Green Building Guidelines for New Home Construction", which provides excellent guidance for architects, engineers, builders and homeowners when trying to conserve natural resources, use energy wisely, improve indoor air quality and build livable communities. Although the course material focuses on residential construction, many of the tips provided in this course are applicable to commercial and office construction.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
