Sustainability and Concrete Masonry: Addressing Carbon
July 22 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Sustainability continues to be a primary driver for material decisions in buildings, for good reason. Residential and commercial buildings account for a significant percentage of energy use and greenhouse gas emissions in the US, and manufacturers are taking steps to reduce their environmental impact. In particular, accounting for carbon emissions is being more important relative to sustainability goals, and there is a heightened focus on reducing the amount of embodied carbon in the built environment.
This course will review ways concrete block producers are reducing carbon in their processes, recent research into how concrete masonry can sequester carbon from environment and innovative ways that concrete masonry can help achieve sustainability goals, including those related to building occupant well-being and comfort.
WHEN: July 22nd at 1:00 pm
This course has been approved for 1 AIA LU|HSW
