Tampa, January 24, 2011 — RedVector.com, the leader in online continuing education for the architectural, engineering, and construction (AEC) industries and a USGBC-approved online education provider, now offers a free podcast library for industry professionals featuring the 5-part series: Sustainable Design & Green Building: A Primer for AEC Business Considerations.
The series begins with a history of sustainable design and its many benefits, including an examination of green buildings and their impact on the environment and human health. From there, listeners will learn about the 9 Principles of Sustainable Design; the USGBC’s LEED program; and the benefits and costs involved with sustainable design and construction. The final podcast, The Future Looks Green: Overcoming Challenges, Encouraging Sustainable Design, takes a look at the future of green building and how it will help shape the AEC industry in the years to come.
Jeff Nippes, RedVector’s Director of Content Development and a LEED Green Associate, is excited about the green-focused podcast series. “People everywhere, in every industry, are beginning to realize that environmentally conscious thinking isn’t just important, it’s essential—and at the heart of it all is the engineering, design and construction industry,” he says. “Our goal at RedVector is to lead the way through education and advance the green building industry not only through our extensive course content, but also through added benefits like the free podcast series.
