Architecture, Design and Building Science

This program's collection of continuing education courses provides the architect/student with a catalog of courses on every construction division. Courses include products and their application, safety, the environmental impact of products, and application case studies. Users can search the catalog using CSI division numbers, keywords, manufacturer names, or product descriptions.

Building Enclosure Design: Fundamentals, Components and Assemblies

Program: Architecture, Design and Building Science

Building enclosures are responsible for controlling heat flow, air flow, vapor flow and a number of other elements. Through a combination of building science fundamentals and current research, this presentation will explore design considerations associated with wood-frame building enclosures and the role of control layers. Discussion will focus on best practices for designing durable, energy-efficient enclosures using traditional light wood-frame construction.

Climate Resilient Buildings: Design for Change

Program: Architecture, Design and Building Science

This course is a recording of a presentation from GreenBuild 2018. Students will learn what resilient design is and how it produces buildings that are better prepared for climate change and the disruptions it brings.

Composite Panel Products – Division 6 Materials & LEED® Credits

Program: Architecture, Design and Building Science

This course will equip participants to compare features, benefits and limitations of particleboard and medium density fiberboard (MDF) with considerations of product grades and their physical properties for proper end-use selection.

Create Safer, Healthier, and Better Sounding Interiors


Program: Architecture, Design and Building Science

This course explores a few of the many ways that interiors impact the health and well-being of the people inside them. From restrooms being designed to reduce contact with contaminated surfaces and inhibit the presence of bacteria, to acoustics solutions that absorb or isolate noise, making interiors more comfortable and productive. Biophilic design, a health-focused design concept that encourages the inclusion of plants, daylight, and natural elements like wood and stone, is also discussed, as are the options designers have for bringing stone elements inside.

Deep Energy Deep Dive

Program: Architecture, Design and Building Science

This course presents a selection of building envelope, glazing and HVAC technologies aimed at supporting net-zero and passive house projects. In working to assemble the right products and systems to help enable these highly sustainable projects, the course garners expertise from leading manufacturers specializing in insulation, glass and variable refrigerant flow technologies. Armed with a better understanding of system application and the net-zero/passive house project process, architects and designers will be better equipped to deliver high-performance, energy-efficient designs.

Design Building Envelopes That Support Healthy, Efficient Buildings


Program: Architecture, Design and Building Science

The building envelope separates the conditioned interior space from environmental elements at large in the great outdoors. This course will explore how a few solutions equip the building envelope to manage moisture, improve thermal performance, and admit daylight without glare.
