Face to Face Workshop for New Buildings

About the Full Day Workshop

This course addressees all 4 of the Green Star rating tools for new buildings and major refurbishments, covering base credits for our Office, Multi-unit Residential, Public & Education Buildings tools as well as our Retail tool. These design and as-built tools allow for the objective measurement and rating of the environmental performance of the design and construction of projects. 

This 1 day workshop forms a key part of the 3 part Green Star AP programme for New Buildings. After attending, participants can elect to continue on to the corresponding online AP course and then complete the online exam in order to obtain an AP- New Buildings accreditation.

Who Should Attend?

This workshop is accessible as a stand alone offering or part of the Accredited Proffesional programme. It is appropriate for any built environment professional or property related person who is seeking a high level understanding of our new building rating tools. 

Workshop Format

Hosted by the Green Building Council South Africa and a qualified faculty member who holds the expertise of applying these rating tools to the certification of a building, this full day session includes an introduction to the Green Building Council, outlines what we do and then dives into the rating tools, the categories and credits. After lunch we spend some time working through group exercises that offer participants the deeper understanding of the application of these rating tools.
