Seminars on Green-Building Standard Offered

Friday, February 26, 2010

Comment | More

ASHRAE announced the availability of updated online seminar programs reviewing the requirements of the recently published, landmark green-building Standard 189.1.

The standard—ANSI/ASHRAE/USGBC/IES Standard 189.1, Standard for the Design of  High-Performance, Green Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings—is described as the first code-intended commercial green-building standard in the U.S. ASHRAE said the standard provides a green-building foundation for the design, construction, and operation of green buildings, and addresses the key topic areas of site sustainability, water-use efficiency, energy efficiency, indoor environmental quality, and the building’s impact on the atmosphere, materials and resources.

The initial seminar program on the requirements of the standard, “Understanding Standard 189.1P for High-Performance, Green Buildings,” is scheduled for March 15. The instructor is Tom Lawrence, a member of the committee that developed the standard. The course is one of 14 being offered this spring.

“The course has evolved as the standard has taken shape, and I anticipate that the course will continue to evolve as changes and addenda are approved, resulting from changes in concepts, technologies and design for green buildings,” Lawrence said. “Standard 189.1 has the potential to be a ‘game changer’ in the industry, and thus anyone who is working with green design would benefit from learning more about the standard.  One way to do that is by taking this course.”

The 14 online, instructor-led seminars will run from March until May. A full list of seminars and registration information can be found at www.ashrae.org/onlinecourses
