NRMCA Launches New Online Course on Zero Energy Schools Built with Concrete
NRMCA this month has launched a new course on Hanley Wood University and Architect magazine titled Zero Energy Schools: How Innovative Concrete Systems Are Making It Possible. Zero energy school construction is a growing trend across the country. A combination of advanced energy efficiency strategies, affordable solar power and an innovative concrete building system called Insulating Concrete Forms (ICFs) is making it possible. ICFs combine the strength and durability of reinforced concrete with the versatility and energy efficiency of rigid insulation.
The course is directed to architects and engineers but anyone in the construction industry can benefit. The course offers 1 AIA LU/HSW for those who need continuing education credit.
The course is free and can be accessed here. This course is one of five Build With Strength courses now offered online: click here to review each of them. For more information, contact Lionel Lemay at 847-918-7101 or LLemay@nrmca.org.
