Build With Strength Launches Concrete Academy
Build With Strength has sponsored the Concrete Academy on BNP Media’s Continuing Education Center. BNP Media publishes Arch Record magazine and, as part of the sponsorship, it will promote the Concrete Academy to its readership. The Concrete Academy explores the emerging topic of concrete and Net Zero buildings, including innovations, specifications and designing with concrete for Net Zero.
The concept of Net Zero buildings, which aims to improve the negative environmental impact of the built environment, is a key component of the discussion on concrete sustainability. Across the world, concrete is one of the most popular building materials due to its affordability and durability. In addition, concrete is often used because of its thermal mass, or ability to store heat energy, which can reduce energy use in buildings. However, increasingly concrete manufacturers are discussing the sustainability issues associated with concrete production, specifically around the reduction of CO2 emissions.
