COURSE TITLE: 

ENVIRONMENTAL BUILDING DESIGN & OPERATION
University of Calgary, Faculty of Continuing Education
Course part of Environmental Management Certificate
 
To achieve environmental design it is imperative that the entire design
method, approach, and discipline be overhauled.  Every component, every
guideline, every mark of the pen must consider the implications of the
adjective environmental.  As such, environmental design must be thought of
as an overall approach or philosophy.  It's limits go well beyond the
practice of design to every aspect of society and to the personal life of
every designer.  It becomes a way of life, a way of thinking, a means to
interact with the world.
 
This online course examines the impacts of buildings on human beings and
the environment, identifies strategies and solutions to evolve
conventional building design towards sustainable human structures. 

Whether you are a practicing architect looking to address an increasing
number of clients' environmental questions and concerns or a closet home
builder that has decided that the gas bill just isn't acceptable anymore -
this course will answer many of your questions and concerns. It provides
an overview of the emerging environmental design discipline and gives you
a live avenue to interact with students and instructor to discuss
environmental building design, construction, and efficient operation.
