“Sustainable and Energy Efficient Windows & Doors: Contribution to Green Buildings” explains:

* How quality windows and doors can contribute to sustainable green design due to their durability and energy-efficient technology.

* What the different “Green Building” voluntary ratings systems are and how they affect the selection of windows and doors.

* How selecting the right windows and doors contributes to environmental stewardship.

* What the advantages and benefits of “Green Building” are to the environment, economy, health, and community.

Architects who successfully complete this course receive one AIA/CES Learning Unit (1.0 LU).
