Sustainable Buildings

This course presents the sustainable buildings checklist with an emphasis on the major benefits and approaches to green and sustainable building design and construction. The course materials were developed by a countywide committee consisting of city planning and permitting staff, city recycling staff, local architects, nonprofit representatives, and builders. Many items on the checklist and in these guidelines are fairly simple, inexpensive, and easy to accomplish. Others are more expensive or require a larger departure from some conventional building systems, but offer correspondingly large rewards. Project professionals should attempt to incorporate these practices in their building design and construction projects.

Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of twenty (20) questions to earn 4 PDH credits.
