The purpose of this full day workshop was to provide practical instruction of the use of available IT tools for achieving higher energy efficiency, better buildings, and less or no detrimental impact on the environment. Moreover, the course facilitated the greater collaboration necessary between architects, engineers, project managers, and other solution providers for exemplary green construction projects. 

The event was useful for executives, engineers, technologists, academics, students, and others interested in exploring ways to benefit from the important shift toward energy efficient and environmentally responsible design principles.

The workshop was interactive and:

  • Discussed green design principles
  • Discussed solar orientation, energy and day lighting considerations
  • Reviewed IT solutions, benefits and possibilities
  • Included relevant case studies.

A detailed workshop agenda is available here .

A limited number of scholarships for interested professors and students were offered.
