Our second Course Mail, “What is a sustainable building?”, is delivered in four easy-to-read emails. After signing up you’ll receive a course mail every week over four weeks. Once you receive the emails you can read the information when and where it suits you.

The aim of this series is to provide a summary of what a sustainable building looks like, not only in terms of physical features but also processes and impact of stakeholders. The building lifecycle provides the structure for the series.

The four key sustainability topics covered in this series are:

  1. Is concept stage the right time to kick off sustainability?
  2. What are the sustainable considerations at design stage?
  3. What are the features of sustainable construction?
  4. What role does sustainability play in operation and revival of buildings?

Each course mail will come with a short knowledge test. By completing the knowledge tests after each module (4 in total) you will be awarded 1 CPD hour. Certificates will be issued after successful completion of the tests.
