Based on Standard 189.1-2011, Standard for the Design of High-Performance Green Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings, this course provides the minimum requirements for the design, construction, and plans for operation of high-performance, green buildings, including new buildings and their systems, new portions of buildings and their systems, and new systems and equipment in existing buildings. Water use efficiency, indoor environmental quality, energy efficiency, site sustainability, and a building’s impact on the atmosphere are covered. The course presents the goals of establishing mandatory criteria in all topical areas, providing simple compliance options, and the complement of green building rating programs for Standard 189.1. Upon completion of this course, participants will understand the basic requirements of Standard 189.1; understand the background that led to the development of these requirements; and become familiar with how to apply the requirements in the Standard to new commercial buildings and major renovation projects.
