In this one-hour program, you will learn the key to sustainable building lies in long-life, adaptable, low-energy design. We will discuss how resources are best conserved if the service life of a building is prolonged, and how using precast concrete conserves energy and resources, both during and after construction.
1. Learn how to design more environmentally friendly buildings.
2. Review how precast/prestressed concrete can contribute to buildings with longer service life and better indoor air quality.
3. Discuss the advantages of designing buildings using natural, renewable, and locally available resources.
4. Analyze how precast/prestressed concrete may qualify for LEED certification.
