This five-day seminar focuses on the science behind the principles of Building Biology. You will learn how these principles can be applied to our buildings in order to create environments that deeply nurture human health while stewarding the environment. You will learn about best-practice for conventional construction and about available alternatives and their potential advantages. You will also learn about prevention and detection of common indoor health hazards and the design and execution strategies in construction and remodeling that prevent or protect against them.
Your daily seminar experience will include lectures, instructor-led discussions, and a high level of student interaction and participation. You will gain focused insight into the dynamic interaction between climate and the built environment, and the impact that good climate-based design can have on raising health and comfort while reducing energy consumption.
