What is a Net Zero Energy Building and why should you care?
Well for one, new federal mandates will be coming into play very soon that will create enormous changes. Also, global demand for energy is rising at exponential rates as it becomes even more scarce and expensive. Net zero design allows you to create buildings that have lower energy demands and can generate their own energy requirements on site. Sounds great right? This course will give you some of the basics for how to go about adding net zero features to your projects to create better structures, happier clients and a better world.
Despite the natural durability found in stone, there are a number of applications -- both exterior and interior -- where issues can arise due to improper use, specification, installation, care, and/or maintenance. This seminar provides the knowledge base architects and designers need to successfully work with natural stone in both residential and commercial projects. Case studies provide a hands-on, problem-solving approach to designing with natural stone. We review pertinent accessibility issues and examine the sustainability of natural stone as it as relates to LEED and the new International Green Building Code. Finally, we look at recent changes in the stone industry and how they impact design options
