Sustainable Design in Practice


Effective organization and design process are as essential to green design as technical knowledge. This course will address techniques for mobilizing support for sustainable building among clients, funding sources, sub-consultants and the project team. A variety of strategies will be discussed with regard to integrated design, goal setting, specifications, commissioning, post-occupancy evaluation, LEED certification, construction administration, and policy implications. Resources for further learning will be provided and discussed as well as case studies representing best practices in orchestrating sustainable design projects.
