Green Building is a field of expertise encompassing the design and application of renewable energy, natural building materials, and ecological landscapes into building design and community development. Students completing UVM’s Vermont Residential Green Building Course will learn about sustainable building tools and strategies, including Vermont Builds Greener Program, LEED for Homes and The NAHB Green Building Program. LEED is a registered trademark and the nationwide rating system of the U.S. Green Building Council. The program, led by Chuck Reiss, of Reiss Building and Renovation, and Building for Social Responsibility, is geared toward working professionals, offered as an accelerated program over three weekends (Friday-Saturday).
Note: This course does not prepare participants for the USGBC’s Green LEED exam.
