Steel Sustainability Toolkit [G2]As the hype surrounding "green" construction evolves, the role of the structural engineer in contributing to sustainable buildings seems to have been diminished to that of simply being a specifier of construction materials rather than a designer of sustainable structures. The real issue for the structural engineering profession is determining what role the structural engineer should play as green building evolves into a collective design and construction consciousness. This course gives engineers a taste of the many of the factors that come into play when designing a LEED or otherwise "green" building, and explains how they can contribute to a green project beyond simply gaining LEED points.
