NRMCA to Host Online Training Sessions on Building Green with Concrete 

Print this Article | Send to Colleague

The green building movement continues to gain momentum as developers, government agencies and designers build structures to minimize environmental impact. NRMCA will host training sessions to build industry awareness with architects, engineers, contractors and others to:

• Understand the environmental attributes of concrete and structures through a life cycle perspective;

• Discuss conventional cast-in-place frames, insulating concrete forms and sandwich panels;

• Explore the thermal properties of concrete and their contribution to passive solar design;

• Reduce the environmental impact of concrete by recycling concrete and by reducing its carbon footprint; and

• Explore concrete’s contribution to LEEDv4.

This course will feature a review of LEED v4, which is radically different than previous versions, and details on how concrete contributes to this new standard. This is a 4-part series where participation in each is required to achieve CEUs.

Title: Building Green with Concrete

Dates: November 14, 15, 16, 17, 2017

Time: 1 to 2 p.m. Eastern time

11/14/17 - Part 1: Environmental Attributes of Concrete

11/15/17 - Part 2: Energy Performance of Concrete Structures

11/16/17 - Part 3: Prioritizing the Environment with Concrete

11/17/17 - Part 4: Concrete and LEED v4

This course is intended for architects, engineers, developers and contractors. Participants who successfully complete each part of this course will be credited with 6 AIA-CEUs. Click here to access each registration link from NRMCA's Web site. After registering, you will receive a confirmation e-mail containing information about joining the Webinar. *Note that sessions will be recorded in the event you cannot participate in one or more.

As part of the Build with Strength campaign, NRMCA promotes sustainable concrete solutions for buildings. This course prepares NRMCA members to compete in the green building marketplace and trends toward product and company transparency (link to Strength through Transparency) in the green building standards and rating systems such as LEED v4.
