LEED, Net Zero, and Passive House structures contribute to global efforts to reduce energy consumption and mitigate climate change. Adopting principles espoused by LEED, Net Zero, and Passive House can lead, for instance, to water conservation, the prioritization of safer building materials, and lower operating and maintenance costs. Metal roofing products such as solar air heating panels, insulated metal panels, solar-ready roof systems, cool roofing, and above sheathing ventilation (ASV) technology can all contribute to net zero and passive design strategies as well as to the earning of LEED credits. This course will examine the design principles behind LEED, Net Zero, and Passive House and the ways in which metal building products can help architects, engineers, and builders achieve sustainability goals.
- Understand the basic design principles behind LEED, Net Zero, and Passive House buildings.
- Examine how technologically advanced metal siding and roofing products can be used in sustainable building design.
- Discover how these innovative metal building technologies can help projects meet LEED, Net Zero, and Passive House standards.
- Explore case studies where metal building products were used to meet green building standards in both commercial and residential projects.
