There is growing interest within the construction industry about sustainability and environmentally friendly, or green, products. This course will review the sustainable attributes of cold-formed metal framing products and how they fit into the green environment. The popularity of green buildings has also given rise to organizations such as the U.S. Green Building Council and its Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) Rating System. The credits in which cold-formed metal framing products can contribute toward achieving LEED® points are reviewed as well as other potential opportunities within the rating system.
Check out the full Course Description.
