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.
