Advanced Green Building Seminar Six-Pack

Ready for the next level? If you already have a strong knowledge of green building and are looking to become an expert then these two hour seminars are designed for you. You will not be bored.

The classes are divided into discrete topics, which will permit you to sign up only for those topics that are of greatest interest and usefulness to you. You can register for each class a la carte or save $$ with 4 or 6- packs.

The topics are:
  • Mechanical Systems – March 7th
    How to we keep our houses comfortable year-round using as little energy as possible for Heating, Cooling, and Ventilation? How do we decide between the seemingly endless options for mechanical systems? How do these system choices effect each other and the other elements of home construction? How do these decisions effect compliance with building codes? Learn all about a selection, installation, and integration of high performance mechanical systems to prepare yourself for the future!

  • Building Envelope – March 14th
    Walls, Roofs, and Floors separate the inside from the outside. While seemingly straightforward, there are a staggering number of possibilities for how this basic function is accomplished. Learn about the latest and greatest thinking about insulation materials and techniques that are currently on the market, as well as some emerging materials through the lens of energy performance, durability, health, cost, and embodied energy. You will never look at a wall or roof the same way again!

  • Indoor Air Quality – March 21st
    The ability to breathe clean fresh air in our homes is perhaps the most valuable benefit of living in a "green home”. Learn how choices of building materials and construction techniques effect our health! Learn how to identify and eliminate toxins from our homes, and how we can use ventilation and filtration strategies to cost effectively make our homes better places to live!

  • Resource Conservation – March 28th
    The market is changing fast! Become familiar with Environmental Product Declarations and how these emerging tools can equip you to make informed choices. Cut through the marketing hype, and learn the truth about the impacts of building materials and how to choose between them!
  • Passive Solar – April 4th
    Passive Solar design is a powerful ally when done right. Learn how to approach passive solar design for the Colorado Front Range. This class will help you to get a grip on this complex subject that will improve your understanding of all homes – not just those that are obvious in their passive solar features! Learn how to get more "free” energy from the sun!
  • Design for a Changing Climate – April 11th
    Our world is changing. This class will start with a close look at climate predictions for Boulder County and the Front Range, and what this will mean for residential home design and construction. Learn how proper design, materials, and construction strategies can reduce the negative impacts of these changes! Participants will learn basic, cost effective strategies to build homes that protect the health, safety, and welfare of its occupants in the face of a changing climate!

We will delve deeply into each subject, looking at specific real-world applications, discussing theory, and analyzing comparative strategies. The classes will be highly interactive with round-table discussions, mini-presentations by participants and frequent Q&A.. The classes will be customized to respond to the specific interests of the attendees.
