Managing Green Building Projects Brasov  
Location : Brasov
From: Friday 11 March 2011, 00:00
To: Friday 11 March 2011, 00:00
  • Managing Green Building Projects, "Romania Green Buidling Professional" Series

A full day course focused on best practices for managing successful green building projects. The course covered, among other topics, key sustainable construction principles including "Integrated Design", obtaining optimal performance results from project partners, and the proper commissioning of completed building projects. Course participants were exposed to very ambitious but achievable performance goals including the "plus-energy" concept where buildings contribute more energy than they consume; a critical concept for the near future due to the approaching EU legislation and concerns about rising energy prices and scarcity.
