UL Environment provides programs to educate design and specifying professionals on indoor air quality (IAQ) and sustainability. Continuing education units (CEUs) offer to increase understanding of sustainability and indoor air quality issues specific to built environments, such as commercial offices, healthcare settings and educational facilities.

 

Course Accreditations

All courses are Health, Safety and Welfare (HSW) accredited through the American Institute of Architects (AIA). Other course accreditations include the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI), and the Interior Design Continuing Education Council (IDCEC).

Health and Wellbeing in Green Building

Wellness in buildings is shown to improve productivity, reduce missed days due to illness, and support overall occupant wellbeing. Green building rating systems and building codes are now incorporating wellness features to support occupant wellness. This presentation explores the importance of wellness in buildings and looks at wellness criteria in building programs including LEED and Fitwel. Attendees will learn strategies for incorporating wellness into their green building projects.

Integrating Building Product Sustainability Early Into the BIM Design Process

Health, Safety & Welfare Credits: AIA (1LU), IDCEC (0.1 CEU), GBCI (1 CE)

Sustainable building design (SD) using the integrated design process (IDP) and building information modelling (BIM) is now a well-established practice, but until recently, green product selection was a parallel process. This course demonstrates how advanced software now seamlessly integrates the gathering, documentation, and sharing of accurate SD product information where it can be the most effective: at the early stages of a BIM/IDP process.

Healthy Indoor Air by Design

Health, Safety & Welfare Credits: AIA (1LU), IDCEC (0.1 CEU), GBCI (1 CE)

This presentation will communicate the importance of indoor air quality (IAQ) and empower architects, designers, specifiers and facility managers to employ strategies to improve the IAQ in the spaces they are creating and maintaining. Learn how indoor air pollution impacts human health and economics. Emphasis will be placed on how participants can incorporate good IAQ principles into sustainable design and maintenance of high performing buildings.

Transparency and the Role of Environmental Product Declarations

Health, Safety & Welfare Credits: AIA (1LU), IDCEC (0.1 CEU), GBCI (1 CE)

Building product transparency has started to gain traction in North America; changes in consumer expectations, building certification systems, and international laws and standards have finally begun to converge in standardized corporate reporting about any number of environmental, social, and health impacts. Many in the design community as well as the manufacturing community are
developing ways to easily communicate some of this information through what it often called a nutrition label for building products. International tools have been developed to easily communicate some of this information through what is known as an environmental product declaration. Illustration of the EPD process, and components of an EPD will be presented.
