ASHRAE Offers Spring Online Courses
February 24, 2010

With publication of the green building standard, an updated online seminar reviewing its requirements is now available from The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE).

Standard 189.1, Standard for the Design of High-Performance, Green Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings, is the first code-intended commercial green building standard in the United States. The standard covers key topic areas of site sustainability, water use efficiency, energy efficiency, indoor environmental quality and the building’s impact on the atmosphere, materials and resources.

A course from ASHRAE on the requirements of the standard, Understanding Standard 189.1P for High-Performance, Green Buildings, takes place March 15 and is taught by Tom Lawrence, a member of the committee that developed the standard.

Others among the 14 courses include:

  • Humidity Controls: Application, Control Levels & Mold Avoidance
  • Introduction to Green Buildings and Sustainable Construction
  • Introduction to Thermal Energy Storage Systems for Air Conditioning
  • Introduction to Cleanroom Design
