As the economy and population continue to expand, the design, construction and operation community will face increasing challenges to meet the new demands for facilities that are accessible, secure, healthy, and productive while minimizing their impact on the environment. For the design, construction/renovation, operation, and decommissioning of a facility, there is an important relationship between the indoor and outdoor environments - the building connection.
This 360-hour certificate program gives students the skills and hands on experience to design and create building envelopes with a sustainable focus on the main functions of the design and construction of the building envelope, including solar and thermal control, moisture control, indoor air quality, acoustics, aesthetics, construction waste management and cost effectiveness. All phases of facility life cycle are examined, balancing environmental stewardship with mission and function of the facility.
