Sustainable Design - An Integrated Process

In the United States alone, buildings account for:

  • 65% of electricity consumption
  • 36% of energy use
  • 30% of greenhouse gas emissions
  • 30% of raw materials use
  • 30% of waste output (136 million tons annually)
  • 12% of potable water consumption

Most design and construction project teams have already heard and applied the concepts of “sustainability” or “green” to some degree in their building projects. The concepts are becoming more and more widely adopted by government and private agencies across the U.S. in all aspects of design and construction, daily business and home life.

By involving all participants of the design and construction team during the entire course of the project, the project can expect to achieve higher levels of successful performance and response to sustainable concepts.

This 2-hour online interactive course provides an introduction to the integrated design process and presents several actual building design features representing the processes that were completed.
