Sustainable Design - High Performance Buildings

COURSE NO: M03-005
Sustainable Design - High Performance Buildings
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes some of the practical sustainable design engineering issues and design processes for energy-efficient buildings at the LANL (Los Alamos National Laboratory).  The topics discussed in this manual can make a difference in the future sustainability of the laboratory and can be applied to other building designs in the country that are being designed with sustainability as a design parameter.


Sustainability has gained a growing momentum in the building design industry over the past few years. Sustainability is a term that embraces engineering, architecture, facility construction, operation and maintenance for the life of a building from conception of the idea to build the building to the demolition of the building.  Design professionals who are working with clients who are using long term life-cycle criteria for making building product and system selection decisions will need to understand sustainable design principles.


This 3 PDH online course is applicable for engineers in the building industry who are interested in designing building with complete integrated design in mind to provide a high-performance building in accordance with new industry trends.
