AIA NH’s offers training sessions in designing more efficient buildings
CONCORD — A 10-session program will train workers in the architecture and engineering fields to design buildings that use 60 percent less energy.
AIA New Hampshire, a chapter of the American Institute of Architects, is taking steps toward helping reduce global greenhouse gas emissions by presenting the program.
Addressing such items as waste heat recovery, energy modeling, active solar systems and other techniques and strategies specific to reaching a 60 percent reduction in fossil fuel greenhouse gas emissions.
Architecture 2030, a nonpartisan, national not-for-profit group, has issued the 2030 Challenge asking the global architecture and building community to reach the goal of carbon-neutral buildings by 2030.
The Concord series will give design professionals the tools needed to create next-generation, super-efficient buildings.
The curriculum includes 10, four-hour educational sessions starting on March 27 and running through Feb. 26, 2015. All sessions are led by experienced practitioners and building scientists and will be held at the Audubon Center in Concord.For more information and to register for the series, contact Carolyn Isaak, AIANH, firstname.lastname@example.org, 357-2863, or go to aianh.org/news/aianh-events.
