Low-Energy, Sustainable Building Design Workshop to be Held in Solar Energy Research Facility

February 1, 2002

One of the nation's most advanced buildings is the site of FEMP's Low-Energy, Sustainable Building Design for Federal Managers workshop on April´┐Ż18-19, 2002 in Golden, Colorado. The workshop is free to Federal Government employees ($99 for contract architects and engineers; fee includes a resource book) and helps agencies comply with Executive Orders 13123 and 13101 and qualifies attendees for 12 AIA Learning Unit Hours. Experienced instructors who are experts in sustainable building design teach this two-day workshop, which focuses on new construction and the "whole building" approach. Buildings designed with an integrated approach use significantly less conventional energy, make more effective use of renewable energy (such as photovoltaics and solar hot water), incorporate recycled and recyclable building materials, conserve water, and minimize construction waste.
