The AIA+2030 Professional Series™ is a comprehensive, ground-breaking curriculum that includes ten, 4-hour sessions teaching strategies to reach the 60% reduction in fossil fuel greenhouse gas emissions called for in the 2030 Challenge. AIA+2030 gives design professionals the knowledge and leverage to create next-generation, super-efficient buildings—and provide firms with the skills that will set them apart in the marketplace. The AIA+2030 program was launched in Seattle in 2009 by the American Institute of Architects Seattle, in partnership with Architecture 2030, and is now in 22 cities through the country.
Speaker: David Jacobs, PhD, CIH
Dr. David Jacobs is the Director of Research at the National Center for Healthy Housing in the US. He previously worked at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development as Director of the Office of Healthy Homes and Lead Hazard Control, where he was responsible for policy development, grants management, enforcement, public education and training, and research. He has conducted several studies on health outcomes associated with green rehabilitation of low-income housing.
Benefits of a healthy home will be highlighted alongside the why behind the research, design and construction process of a healthy home. Annette will stress the importance of gathering data through a detailed assessment of the MSDS sheets and rigorous vetting process plus testing the products. A case study will be reviewed demonstrating the implementation of the products and design that was done on a renovation in Colorado
Carbon footprints, Life Cycle Assessments (LCAs), and Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) are all buzz words that seem to be popping up all over the place, but how can we use them to reduce Building Sector greenhouse gas emissions? Architecture 2030's Francesca Desmarais outlines the 2030 Challenge for Products – a road map for reducing the embodied carbon of building products and closing the information gap obscuring the path to true carbon neutral buildings. Ms. Desmarais discusses the vision and strategy of the Products Challenge, how to use LCAs and EPDs, the critical role of specifiers and product manufacturers, and some exciting new developments in the industry.
Water and Energy have always been connected, but only recently has the depth of that connection become obvious. This webinar will explore the issues involved in the water resources needed for power plant cooling, and the energy resources needed to pump, treat, and heat drinking water and to treat wastewater. It will cover how saving water can save energy and carbon emissions.
