Zero-Energy Schools: How Innovative Concrete Systems Are Making It Possible Webinar (Free)

April 22, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Hosted by the National Ready Mix Concrete Association | Build with Strength

AIA-CES: 1 HSW LU (1 Hour) | 1 PDH | 0.1 CEU

Zero-energy school construction is a growing trend across the country. A combination of advanced energy-efficiency strategies, affordable solar power and an innovative concrete building system called insulating concrete forms (ICFs) is making it possible. ICFs combine the strength and durability of reinforced concrete with the versatility and energy efficiency of rigid insulation. This presentation provides designers with zero-energy strategies along with details on how to take advantage of the high R-value and thermal mass of ICFs to offer affordable schools with significant energy cost savings over the long term.

Learning Objectives
• Understand the principles and strategies behind zero-energy school design and construction.
• Understand how innovative concrete systems such as ICFs are being used to achieve zero-energy schools. • Understand how a combination of energy-efficiency strategies, high-performance envelopes and solar power are used to meet zero-energy criteria.
• Understand the contribution concrete makes to safe and productive schools by providing energy-efficient, quiet and resilient structures.
