The Top 10 Ways to Reduce Concrete’s Carbon Footprint (Print Course)

Concrete is the building block of modern society and the most widely used building material. Nearly every structure built today, including buildings, bridges, homes, and infrastructure uses concrete in some way. It provides us with shelter along with places to work, learn and play. It connects us through roads and rapid transit and airports. Water is delivered and treated in concrete structures. Concrete is economical, available everywhere, durable, and versatile.

As demand for building construction continues to increase, it is likely the demand for concrete will also increase. Like all building products, however, concrete has a carbon footprint. This course will analyze the top ten strategies to take advantage of concrete’s benefits while ensuring the lowest possible carbon footprint.

Strength Through Transparency: How Concrete EPDs are Driving Down Carbon Footprint (Print Course)

Concrete is the most commonly used man-made material and comes second only to water as the most widely used substance on earth. It can be found in nearly every building project, from structural components to sidewalks and parking lots. As populations continue to grow and the building sector continues to experience exponential growth, the concrete industry is taking the lead in driving initiatives toward a sustainable future through transparency and innovative concrete solutions.

By better understanding concepts and terminology relevant to a sustainable future; assessing LEED v4, ASHRAE 189.1, and the International Green Construction Code; learning how to specify concrete for LEEDv4; and discovering innovative concrete technologies and products, those in the AEC industry will be better positioned to achieve carbon emissions reduction goals and contribute to the creation of a more sustainable built environment.

The Form and Function of Decorative Concrete (Print Course)

Decorative concrete encompasses everything from overlays, inlays, mosaics, stamped concrete, and cast-in-place concrete amongst others. It can be used for swimming pool decks, as highly durable polished floors, and in a variety of vertical applications. Board-formed cast-in-place concrete can function both structurally and aesthetically, and masters such as Ando, Calatrava, and Kahn have mastered its use.

By understanding and analyzing the form and function of decorative concrete, as well as its benefits, limitations, and legacy, architects and other specifiers, will be better equipped to make innovative design decisions.
