Municipalities, city planners, architects, engineers, contractors and manufacturers have to tackle the emerging challenges related to the increase in population and the growth of cities. The creation of resilient, ecological and regenerative solutions for urban environments requires investments in knowledge, education and interdisciplinary collaboration across the building sector.
In order to mitigate the consequences of climate change and to reduce CO2 emissions in the construction sector there is a rising need of professional figures able to address climate neutral design, resilient approaches and implementation of circular economy principles.
The lead will be taken by those professionals who are trained to manage net zero carbon buildings and districts, adaptive urban ecosystems, healthy communities in the framework of a new regenerative approach, therefore contributing to the transition to the post carbon era. A key role in that transition will be played by Green Buildings and Cities Managers.
The module goal is to provide an understanding of the principles, strategies and tools for the enforcement of green and sustainable buildings and urban ecosystems, from design stages to construction and operations.
With a focus on the main Sustainable Development pillars of Decarbonisation, Circularity and Resilience and by analysing the most important international rating systems the attendants will be able to contextualise the challenges and the answers needed by the construction industry and its supply chain.
The module covers green building and masterplan certifications such as LEED, SITES, WELL, FITWEL and provides an understanding of the role played by Digital and BIM in creating design and process constructs that can inform the circular transformation of the construction supply chain.
