Description
This interactive webcast focuses on the sustainable nature of mixed-use development. Flexible building use gathers multiple functions into a single structure to redefine sustainable growth in the 21st century. Originally, energy was the main focus in creating buildings that were in harmony with the environment. Although focus on energy and resource conservation remains, the focus has expanded to include the concept of flexibility and density. This course also focuses on the various environmental, economic, and social benefits of providing combined commercial and residential space including; water use reduction, energy conservation, infrastructure cost, infill development, and land preservation. In addition, this course also looks at new sustainability initiatives that look outside the building envelope for sustainable opportunities (e.g., LEED Neighborhood Development, Sustainable Sites Initiative).
