Going Green in the Construction World;
MCCC's Continuing Studies Offers Insight on How

2-2-09

West Windsor, N.J. -- Green building brings together a vast array of practices and techniques to reduce and ultimately eliminate the impact of buildings on the environment and human health. Robert Wisniewski, a LEED certified instructor (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) will teach a noncredit course, "Green Building," from March 3 to 24, through Mercer County Community College's Center for Continuing Studies. The class takes places Tuesdays from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. at the West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road.

Wisniewski will present an overview of the practices of ecologically focused building design with the intent of assisting those eager to achieve LEED certification. LEED is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings.

During the four-session course, many of the latest specialized construction methods to produce environmentally sound residential and commercial properties will be explored. Among the methods are the use of innovative technologies and building materials, passive/active solar technologies and natural non-toxic finishes.

For further information and to register for this and other noncredit courses, call (609) 570-3311 or e-mail comed@mccc.edu. The current course bulletin is available online here..
