Get Ahead of the Curve with Green Building

Green Building is rapidly becoming one of the most popular and profitable sectors of architecture.  While initial costs can be daunting, Green Buildings yield a higher rate of return and lower maintenance costs over time. The industry is expected to contribute $303.5 billion dollars to the Gross Domestic Product of the United States in 2018 alone.

Architect Training Institute offers a three-hour ‘Building Green into the Budget’ course designed to meet consumer needs while staying within budget.  This course has been approved by the AIA for all 50 states and by the Florida Architecture and Interior Design Board. Once architects have finished this course they will be able to:

  • Accurately define energy conservation and generation concepts, and describe at least three efficient use of materials that will save building and operation costs.
  • Identify the techniques used in alternative wall systems, and explore the benefits of each.
  • Demonstrate many uses of both EPS and XPS insulation sheathing.
  • Outline at least one application of energy efficient design in indoor systems.

The Building Green into the Budget course is approved by the AIA for continuing education and the Florida Architecture and Design Board.

The Art of Building Green and Architecture

We have entered the age of sustainable design and energy efficient building. Today’s Architects must be really creative with their design plans. Simply as adding solar panels to a building is not going to be produce groundbreaking headlines.

Architects Training Institute has created 4 online courses that count towards continued education for all Architects. These courses will help industry professionals identify important considerations and then apply those principles to a specific project.

As technological innovation creates new construction possibilities, incorporating energy-efficiency into building projects not only provides a better quality of life, but also protect the environment. Methods of green building allow homes to have less impact on the environment, while providing a greater economic benefit to the homeowner.

“Green construction is the practice of erecting buildings and using processes that are environmentally responsible and resource efficient. Green buildings limit their environmental impact by conserving as much energy and water as possible and are constructed of recycled or renewable materials in order to achieve maximum resource efficiency.”
