Introduction to Green Buildings

Helen Chen, Ph.D., PE

From green cars to green buildings, building "green" has gathered tremendous momentum around the world in recent years as a result of increased awareness of global warming and record-high prices of natural resources. The goal of building "green" for the construction industry is to reduce the life cycle cost of buildings while maximizing health and environmental performance. This course is based entirely on the publication "Sustainable Buildings" - a superb guide published by San Mateo County, California. This guide is one of the best published works on the subject, and provides excellent guidance for architects, engineers, contractors, and building owners in a well-organized format when it comes to conservation of natural resources, the wise use of energy, improvement of air quality, and development of livable communities. The green building strategies provided in this course are applicable to various types of construction, from commercial to residential. This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
