COURSE TITLE: Energy Savings in MEP Systems - Building Design
COURSE NO: M02-010
Energy Savings in MEP Systems - Building Design
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes a wide variety of sustainable concepts and practical ideas from design to facility operation that will help with the integration of the various systems within the building.  This course also explains that a key to successful integrated building design is the participation of people from different specialties of design:  general architecture, HVAC, lighting and electrical, interior design, and landscape design.  Although the reference text discusses Federal Facilities, the principles apply to all building types.  Part IV of this source material focuses on the building envelop and integrated design involving all disciplines of the engineering and architectural work.

 

Integrated building design is a process of design in which multiple disciplines and seemingly unrelated aspects of design are integrated in a manner that permits synergistic benefits to be realized. The goal is to achieve high performance and multiple benefits at a lower cost than the total for all the components combined.  This process often includes integrating green design strategies into conventional design criteria for building form, function, performance, and cost.

 

This 2 PDH online course is applicable to all engineers, design and construction personnel, technical staff and facility personnel who are interested in gaining a better understanding "green" integrated building design in general and more specifically for federal buildings.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Integrated building design
  • Passive solar design
