Green or sustainable buildings, are structures designed, built, renovated, operated, or reused in an environmentally sensitive and resource-efficient manner. During this five-week brown bag series, you will learn how and why green
buildings are designed to meet primary objectives such as

  • protecting occupant health;
  • improving employee productivity;
  • using energy, water, and other resources more efficiently, and
  • limiting the negative impacts to the environment.

The series will take place on five Fridays, November 2, 9,
16, 30 and December 7. There will not be a class during Thanksgiving week. You may register for the entire series or attend an individual session for $30 each. Call to register for individual sessions or payable at the door.
