Low-carbon building involves designing, constructing, operating, maintaining, and removing buildings in ways that conserve natural resources and reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions. To move towards a low-carbon economy, we need tradespeople who are educated in the design, construction maintenance and operation of buildings, who understand the industrial and constructions sectors, and are trained in low-carbon building skills.
Sheridan College’s participation in the Low Carbon Building Skills (LCBS) project involved developing and delivering low-carbon building skills curriculum across relevant disciplines and involving the full building cycle, from design to operations and optimization. The learning modules address what can be done to reduce and/or eliminate the use of carbon in new and existing buildings from a variety of disciplines.
Designed for professors of Ontario Post Secondary institutions, access to course material is granted with verification of a post-secondary email address. Through instruction of the LCBS modules, students will gain experience in design, implementation, operation, optimization and troubleshooting of building systems which will lead to building with a net decrease in energy consumption and GHG production resulting in reduced carbon emissions within Ontario.
