Course Summary:

The sustainable buildings checklist, booklet, and program were developed by a countywide committee consisting of city planning and permitting staff, city recycling staff, local architects, nonprofit representatives, and builders.

This course aims to explain all the checklist items, some of which may be unfamiliar to some users, and to describe the major benefits and approaches to green. Many items on the checklist and in these guidelines are fairly simple, inexpensive, and easy to accomplish. Almost every project should try to do these practices. Others are more expensive or require a larger departure from some conventional building systems, but offer correspondingly large rewards.
