Learning Objectives

1. Gain knowledge on national standards and base policies for net zero energy.
2. Understand how to navigate the various "reach" codes being implemented by local jurisdictions.
3. Know how to apply the major sections of the code to your design and where to get help.
4. Get a good handle on the future of code changes focusing on the decarbonization transition.

The Positive Impact of Thoughtful Materials Selection

$25

This class aims to educate architects and engineers on the importance of considering the environmental impact of the products they specify in their building designs. It covers topics such as calculating carbon emissions, understanding the manufacturing processes, and documentation supporting reduced embodied carbon. Additionally, it explores various assessment tools such as life cycle assessment (LCA), environmental product declarations (EPDs), and material transparency declarations. The class also highlights the benefits of reusing existing buildings and materials versus tear-down and new construction.

Credits: 1 AIA HSW + 1 GBCI (USGBC/CAGBC) + 1 AIBD Primary + 1 Net Zero (ZNCD) + 1 Sustainable Design + 1 AIBC Core LU + 1 AAA Structured LU + 1 OAA, OAQ, SAA, MAA, AAPEI, NWTAA

Length: 1 hour
