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. With LEED v4 starting to hit the construction market, NRMCA has updated its Building Green with Concrete education course in an on demand format. This course is intended for architects, engineers, developers and contractors. Participants who successfully complete all four parts of this course will be credited with 6 AIA-CEUs.

The on-demand training is intended 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 concrete building systems and their attributes in meeting green building design;

• 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:
Part 1: Environmental Attributes of Concrete

Part 2: Energy Performance of Concrete Structures

Part 3: Prioritizing the Environment with Concrete

Part 4: Concrete and LEED v4

The fee is $150; click here to register. As part of the Build With Strength campaign, NRMCA promotes sustainable concrete solutions for buildings. For more information, contact James Bogdan at or 412-420-4138.
