New RedVector AEC Course: Green Design: Introduction to High Performance Building Design (Based on LEED v4)

RedVector is happy to announce the launch of a brand new mobile-ready eLearning course!

Green Design: Introduction to High Performance Building Design (Based on LEED v4)

This RedVector course will look at the ways buildings use energy and how buildings can be designed for high energy performance. It is important that architects and designers understand and are aware of the resources and methods available for improving building designs in the future. A major piece to understanding sustainable building design is also understanding the requirements of the Energy and Atmosphere category of LEED v4 Building Design and Construction (BD+C).

By the end of this RedVector course written by Richard Kelso, Professor Emeritus at the University of Tennessee and ASHRAE Fellow, students will be able to explain and identify how building design and construction can impact the health and well-being of the people within the surrounding environment; define and identify energy use and its effects on buildings and the safety and welfare of the people within and around; describe the three options for Daylight LEED v4 credits and their impacts on the environment; explain the proper use and storage of refrigerants used in vapor compression systems to ensure a healthy, safe space for building occupants and the environment; describe and identify the process to ensure that a building is operating at peak efficiencies to maintain a safe environment for people and the surrounding area; list the LEED requirements for the facility and operations maintenance plan; and identify and explain the LEED Credit and prerequisites for Energy and Atmosphere.

RedVector is excited about the launch of this mobile-ready course and has several other new courses coming soon. Be sure to follow our blog and check us out on Facebook and Twitter to stay up-to-speed on all the latest eLearning news and course launches!
