WI Building Initiatives: Resource and Energy Best Practices

Even as technological innovation creates new construction possibilities, incorporating energy-efficiency into building projects can not only provide a better quality of life, but also protect the environment.  A comprehensive approach to resource and energy efficiency is the best method to achieve a resource and energy efficient building. This one hour course will help builders identify important considerations and then apply those principles to a specific project.

After completing this course, students will be able to:

  • Understand the importance of building placement on the lot, “Brownfield” site clean-up methods and the need for soil erosion control and basic methods.
