About This Course:
Urban development with incorporation of sustainable design strategies and management vision promote interconnected green space, a multi-modal transportation system, and mixed-use development. Diverse public and private partnerships can be used to create sustainable and livable communities that protect historic, cultural, and environmental resources. In addition, supports from policymakers, regulators and developers for sustainable site planning and construction techniques are critical in reducing pollution and establishing a balance between built and natural systems.
In this learning program, attendees will understand the difference in development decisions and outcomes; and the philosophical, political, administrative impediments and enhancements to sustainable outcomes. The four major elements of focus are transportation systems, open space, architecture and land planning.
In this learning program, elements of and examples of office design elements that incorporates the WELL Building Concepts will be examined. Examples will be presented to reinforce the attendees understanding as to how the WELL design concepts can enhance the productivity, quality of life and mental well-being of employees.
