Integrated Design(I-P) (GBCI)
This course discusses the impacts some architectural decisions have and how these decisions affect sustainable/green project goals. Upon completion of this course you will understand the: cost implications when choosing a site ; impact site orientation has on the use of natural resources ; roles of key design team members ; basis of integrated design and how it affects project costs ; importance of building information modeling and how it assists the design team ; importance of parametric simulations to determine building loads ; effects moisture intrusion has on the building envelope ; concept of night precooling . You will also be able to: Describe the importance of natural daylighting ; Utilize existing research and sources for information; List the: Performance strategies for specific building types ; Cost impacts/savings for specific building types; Design team goals and responsibilities; Project delivery methods and their advantages/disadvantages; Ways in which the HVAC engineer can assist the architect and electrical engineer; Responsibilities the HVAC engineer has, beyond the design of the building. This course is approved by GBCI. It can be subscribed to independently, as a part of the Fundamentals of Sustainable Buildings and High Performance Systems Design (GREENGUIDE) (I-P), Sustainable Building Design Course Package (I-P), or Advanced Technologies eLibrary. 3.0 PDHs.
