Commercial Green Building - Water Management

Course Format: Online
School/Trainer: Online Institute of America
Training Center(s)/Venue(s): Lakeway, United States
  V

Plumbing systems have evolved from being a simple means of distributing water and collecting wastes into increasingly sophisticated systems that must also address environmental concerns. The design of a plumbing system must incorporate not only traditional issues of sanitation, flow, and pressure, but also environmentally based preferences for recycling wastewater, use of non-utility water, and different treatments for potable and non-potable water. New technologies, responses to water efficiency concerns, and community-based water quality goals pose numerous challenges for 21st Century plumbing design. These challenges are often exacerbated by stresses induced by rapid development.
&,quot,Non-utility&,quot, water refers to water not provided by the utility, such as rainwater and graywater.

Commercial Green Building - Site Design and Planning

Course Format: Online
School/Trainer: Online Institute of America
Training Center(s)/Venue(s): Lakeway, United States
  V

Preservation of site resources and conservation of energy and materials - both during construction and in ongoing building operations - are important and often overlooked benefits of good site design.
Sustainable site planning identifies ecological, infrastructural, and cultural characteristics of the site to assist designers in their efforts to integrate the building and the site. The intent is to encourage optimum use of natural/existing features in architectural and site design, such that building energy use is diminished and environmental degradation is minimized.

Commercial Green Building - Operations and Maintenance

Course Format: Online
School/Trainer: Online Institute of America
Training Center(s)/Venue(s): Lakeway, United States
  V

Adequate planning for the efficient operation and maintenance of a building and its systems is a critical component of high performance design and construction.
Design strategies that address operations and maintenance (O&,M) issues can result in reduced custodial costs and lower energy consumption. Exposure to physical and chemical hazards, toxins, odors, and potential asthma &,#146,triggers&,#146, can be reduced or eliminated. Efficient operation and maintenance also enhances the indoor environment and may contribute positively to user/occupant well-being and productivity. To achieve successful operations and maintenance, it is important to ensure that planned systems and strategies are consistent with the resources available to the client agency.

Commercial Green Building - Material and Product Selection

Course Format: Online
School/Trainer: Online Institute of America
Training Center(s)/Venue(s): Lakeway, United States
  V

Selecting materials and products for high performance buildings involves consideration of environmental and health issues in addition to more traditional criteria such as cost, durability, performance, and aesthetics. While methods for evaluating products based on these criteria are still evolving, the number of available building products with improved environmental and health characteristics have been steadily increasing. Markets are responding to meet the demands of government, businesses, and consumers who are increasingly aware of health and environmental concerns.

Commercial Green Building - Indoor Environment

Commercial Green Building - Design Process

Course Format: Online
School/Trainer: Online Institute of America
Training Center(s)/Venue(s): Lakeway, United States
  V

The delivery of a high performance project calls for significantly increased collaboration among the various design disciplines.
A focused goal-setting session should help develop a work plan for incorporating high performance objectives.
The emphasis on interdisciplinary design and resource management, together with use of new design tools, distinguishes high performance from conventional processes.

Commercial Green Building - Construction Administration

Course Format: Online
School/Trainer: Online Institute of America
Training Center(s)/Venue(s): Lakeway, United States
  V

Construction and demolition debris is the waste stream generated by new construction, by renovation, and by the demolition of existing buildings.
Building construction and renovation activities alter the urban environment, generating noise, waste, and air pollution that can stress the building&,#146,s occupants and neighbors.
High performance construction practices can help reduce adverse effects during construction while improving the building&,#146,s long-term environmental performance. In particular, construction and demolition (C&,D) waste has become an increasing environmental and municipal burden, equaling up to 30% of the municipal solid waste stream.
The majority of this waste is generally disposed of by private haulers engaged by demolition subcontractors and landfilled in or out of state, at increasing cost to taxpayers. The strategies that follow can reduce the amount of C&,D waste generated at the start, and encourage better waste management methods through salvage and recycling.

Commercial Green Building - Commercial High Performance Guidelines

Course Format: Online
School/Trainer: Online Institute of America
Training Center(s)/Venue(s): Lakeway, United States
  V

High performance buildings maximize operational energy savings, improve comfort, health, and safety of occupants and visitors, and limit detrimental effects on the environment.
This 7-hour program provides instruction in the new methodologies that form the underpinnings of high performance commercial and municipal buildings. Coverage includes how these practices may be implemented within existing frameworks of municipal capital project administration and facility management.
These Guidelines promote careful study of all stages in project development to ensure the fiscal integrity of the commercial project. They also encourage the formulation of responsible budgets at the planning stage. Further, they help the design team to identify any high performance cost premiums (together with cost savings) and to justify them to the Owner&,#146,s satisfaction.

Commercial Green Building - Building Energy Use

Course Format: Online
School/Trainer: Online Institute of America
Training Center(s)/Venue(s): Lakeway, United States
  V

Today&,#146,s world view of energy efficiency is very different from the energy conservation mentality of the 1970s, which is recalled by those of us who were around then as a time of long lines at the gas pumps and diminished comfort in our homes and places of work.
The energy efficiency model of today involves benefits, not sacrifices. In high performance buildings, energy efficient design begins with a methodical reduction of the building&,#146,s heating and cooling loads - those imposed by climate and those generated by people and equipment. With all loads minimized, mechanical systems are then selected based on highest output for lowest fuel consumption.

Commercial Green Building - Building Commissioning

Course Format: Online
School/Trainer: Online Institute of America
Training Center(s)/Venue(s): Lakeway, United States
  V

The commissioning process assures the building owner that the equipment, systems, and controls providing light, heat, cooling, and ventilation are effectively working together in conformance with design intent. Commissioning determines whether the systems need to be adjusted to improve efficiency, indoor air quality, and acoustic performances. The commissioning process encompasses-but also surpasses-the normal testing, adjusting, and balancing (TAB) activities commonly performed in inspections. Commissioning also involves comprehensive functional testing to determine how well mechanical and electrical systems work together. Because so many building systems are now integrated, a deficiency in one component can result in substandard operation and performance among other components.
In general practice, a commissioning agent assists the construction team in substantively reducing and eliminating defects before the building is turned over to its occupants. Commissioning may also occur based on a partial system upgrade.
