AIA+2030 Professional Series 2.0

June 20, 2016


The AIA+2030 Professional Series 2.0 will premiere at Build Pittsburgh 2016. AIA Pittsburgh’s Committee on the Environment (COTE) created the program to help design professionals create buildings that meet the ambitious energy efficiency goals of the Architecture 2030 Challenge.® Ten 4-hour sessions offer strategies to seek, design, deliver, and manage buildings that reach 70% or better reductions in fossil fuel greenhouse gas emissions, giving design professionals, contractors, and owners the knowledge and leverage to demand and create next-generation, super-efficient buildings and providing firms with the skills that will set them apart in the marketplace.

Take it for the first time or come back for more! With 2.0, COTE builds on its highly successful 2013-14 series by incorporating a broader pool of speakers, more local case studies, and in-depth tours of high-performing built projects. Content derived from the GBA 2030 Districts and Architecture 2030 videos will deepen the programming. The series will also delve in-depth into the significant changes the industry has seen in the last few years, such as the use of analytical software to predict building energy performance. The updated program will strike a rich balance between new construction and renovation, residential and commercial, theoretical and completed, and urban and rural project types.

Earn 4 AIA/CES LU/HSW hours and 4 GBCI CEUs per session!
GBCI CEUs provided through the Green Building Alliance.
