  • Indoor air quality can dramatically influence the health and comfort of building occupants. It is critical to understand and control common pollutants in order to reduce the risk of health concerns related to indoor environments. This course examines the pollutants common to building interiors and their potential to cause adverse health effects. Discussions include VOC content and emissions, the value of an IAQ management plan, and the importance of specifying low-emitting materials.

  • Sustainable building design (SD) using the integrated design process (IDP) and building information modelling (BIM) is now a well-established practice, but until recently, green product selection was a parallel process. This course demonstrates how advanced software now seamlessly integrates the gathering, documentation, and sharing of accurate SD product information where it can be the most effective: at the early stages of a BIM/IDP process.

  • Driven largely by public interest in minimizing the potential environmental impact of building products, architects and builders actively embrace “green” initiatives and are calling for building product transparency. The Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) was developed to address this need. This course examines the EPD and includes discussions on who wants EPDs and why, the EPD development process, the contents of an EPD, and the future of EPDs.
