Course Objectives The students who succeeded in this course will be able to compare cons and pros between building structure mainly LEED/USA, partially BREEAM /GB and BEP/TR certification systems.
Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Will be able to discuss and compare/contrast how our buildings can create a healthier more sustainable future with LEED, Bream and BEP.
  • Will be able to learn associated classification of green building practices, as well as mainly the LEED credit rating systems and reference guides.
  • Will be able to describe how LEED provides a framework for healthy, highly efficient, and cost-saving green buildings.
  • Will be able to evaluate a knowledge associated with the basic of green design, construction and operation
  • Will be able to explain the principles of an environmentally and socially responsible, healthy, and prosperous environment that improves the quality of life.
Course Description The course will be focusing on mainly LEED/USA,1998 (Leadership in energy and environmental Design) Green Building Design and Construction Certification Systems. It delivers a comprehensive framework for green building design, construction, operations and performance, partially BREEAM /GB 1997 (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) and BEP/TR. 2010 (Building Energy Performance)
