RedVector is proud to release a new course, Green Design: Brownfield Redevelopment.
Brownfield is used to describe land that is abandoned or underused out of concern that the land is contaminated. There are a variety of estimates that claim there are anywhere from 450,000 brownfields to over 5 million acres of abandoned properties throughout the U.S. alone. These properties create major urban infill opportunities. This interactive online course gives you a better understanding of what brownfields are, where they came from, where they still exist and what initiatives (USGBC, LEED, federal, state and local) surround brownfield redevelopment.
By the end of this course, you will be able to explain how brownfields form, know the federal definition for “brownfield,” identify the variety of techniques for brownfield cleanup, recognize what differentiates a major brownfield cleanup with a minor one, know major regulations in brownfield redevelopment, know federal, state, and local incentives and assistance for brownfield cleanup, define and effectively understand the brownfield redevelopment credit for LEED buildings, and use case studies as a guide for insight of existing brownfield sites that have been successful redevelopments.
