  • Decreasing the Potential for Liabilities Associated with Green and High Performance Building

    Contains 6 Component(s), Includes Credits

    Green and high performance building is a rapidly growing industry, evoking the potential for previously unconsidered or under-appreciated liability risks related to both building and design. Green builders, remodelers and other building industry professionals can decrease their risk through proper messaging, effective documentation and detailed planning. The entire team, from sales to warranty, must understand the proper terminology, what statements can be made, and how the process in itself provides a level of protection. This module is part of the Advanced High Performance Building: Project Management course.

  • High Performance Building as a Building Strategy

    Contains 6 Component(s), Includes Credits

    One of the biggest high performance building hurdles to overcome is the perception that it costs too much and that the added benefits do not justify the costs. Too often builders and remodelers fall victim to the same perception and actually reinforce it by trying to defend the cost rather than emphasize the value that they have created for their buyer. Return on investment (ROI) and available incentives work to justify the cost and should be part of the discussion with customers, but only a part. It is also important to shift the conversation to the recognition of created value. This module reviews how to do just that. It is also part of the High Performance Building for Building Professionals course. Please note: If you experience any issues with Adobe Flash when accessing the on-demand course or module, please try the Mozilla Firefox Web browser.

  • Resource Efficiency

    Contains 6 Component(s), Includes Credits

    While housing is a key element in the nation’s economy, it is also an enormous consumer of materials and resources. Every year these resources are consumed in home construction as well as to repair and remodel existing homes. The average 2,000-square-foot home generates 1,500 to 3,700 pounds of solid wood waste and 1,000 to 1,800 pounds of engineered wood waste. Of this waste, three components — cardboard, wood and drywall — consistently account for 60-80% of the total on most job sites. These are fully recyclable materials. This module will discuss smart material selection and maintenance reduction. It is also part of the High Performance Building for Building Professionals course. Please note: If you experience any issues with Adobe Flash when accessing the on-demand course or module, please try the Mozilla Firefox Web browser.

    While housing is a key element in the nation’s economy, it is also an enormous consumer of materials and resources. Every year these resources are consumed for new home construction as well as to repair and remodel existing homes. According to a report from the Department of Wood Science and Forest Products at Virginia Tech and the USDA Forest Service Southern Research Station, the average 2,000-square-foot home generates 1,500 to 3,700 pounds of solid wood waste and 1,000 to 1,800 pounds of engineered wood waste. Of this waste, three of the components — cardboard, wood and drywall — consistently account for 60 to 80%of the total on most job sites. These are fully recyclable materials. This module will discuss smart material selection, to reduce waste and help ensure that components last longer.  

    By completing this module, you will be able to:

    • Describe effective approaches to achieving reduced material quantity for improved resource efficiency.
    • Describe practices that enhance the durability of materials and reduce maintenance.

  • Building Science and the Whole House

    Contains 6 Component(s), Includes Credits

    High performance and green building emphasize a whole-house approach to build homes that are more environmentally sustainable and energy efficient. A whole-house approach applies a perspective that goes beyond seeing a home as just a summation of its individual parts. It explains the interaction of all parts of a home, its systems and equipment, its occupants and the structure itself. Building science has a key role because it explains the interactions and drives the health, comfort, sustainability and efficiency of the structure. Lack of knowledge or attention to detail could yield unintended consequences in a home’s operation, indoor environment or durability. This module explores key building science principles: heat transfer, moisture movement, air pressure and climate zone considerations. It is also part of the High Performance Building for Building Professionals course. Please note: If you experience any issues with Adobe Flash when accessing the on-demand course or module, please try the Mozilla Firefox Web browser.

  • Energy Efficiency – Parts A and B

    Contains 7 Component(s), Includes Credits

    Any effective approach to reduced energy consumption involves a three-fold strategy: conservation, consumption and alternative energy generation. All three energy-efficiency approaches work interdependently, but energy efficiency starts with conserving energy through a well-designed and implemented building envelope. It’s only then that introducing more efficient equipment and implementing alternative strategies can have an even greater impact. This module covers how to achieve an energy-efficient building envelope through various conservation, consumption and alternative energy strategies. It explains performance benchmarks and the options for testing and achieving compliance with the ICC/ASHRAE 700-2015 National Green Building Standard™ (NGBS). This module is part of the High Performance Building for Building Professionals course.

  • Indoor Environmental Quality

    Contains 6 Component(s), Includes Credits

    One of the highest priorities for many new home buyers is a healthier indoor environment, so knowledgeable builders, remodelers and designers can often reap extra profits or establish a market niche by producing homes with improved indoor environmental quality. Building industry professionals who do not follow sound indoor environmental quality practices run the potential risk of costly callbacks and, in worst-case scenarios, possible legal action. This module covers indoor environmental quality strategies such as the reduction or elimination of potential sources of pollutants, control of pollutants, filtration of pollutants and mitigation of radon. This module is part of the High Performance Building for Building Professionals course.

  • Water Efficiency

    Contains 6 Component(s), Includes Credits

    With limited water resources, rising demand and decreasing supply, it is surprising that most people give little thought to where water comes from and where it goes after it is used. Creating water-efficient practices involves changing the thinking and behavior of the consumer. In fact, some jurisdictions already offer incentives to existing homes but require mandates for new construction. Water concerns are increasing in many building projects and will surely direct development and growth in the near future. This module covers water efficiency strategies that can enable building industry professionals to respond to this vitally important environmental concern. It is also part of the High Performance Building for Building Professionals course.

  • Green Remodeling - Parts A and B

    Contains 7 Component(s), Includes Credits

    While many energy efficiency and sustainability programs focus on new homes, improving existing homes creates additional impact on the environment and energy efficiency. In 2015, 1.1 million homes and there were 134 million existing housing units. The additional new homes represent under 1% of the housing stock. Yet approximately 22 million owner-occupied housing units, or 16% of the housing stock, were remodeled in 2015.
