Managing Green Building Projects

To: Thursday 10 March 2011, 00:00
  • "Romania Green Building Professional" Series

A full day course focused on best practices for managing successful green building projects. The course covers, 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 will be 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.

The prices for attending this course are:

  • RoGBC member - individual -> 125 Euro
  • Non-member - individual -> 195 Euro
