Training programme of Centre for Science and Environment
24th -26th August, 2016

Centre for Science and Environment’s Sustainable Building and Habitat Programme is organizing “Building Sense”, a certificate course on sustainable buildings, from 24th to 26th August, 2016. The programme aims to enable participants to adopt a common sense approach to green buildings, one that blends traditional wisdom with modern science.

The itinerary includes more than 15 sessions including classroom lectures, site visits, group exercises etc. The course would cover an array of aspects which explore real sustainability by deconstructing the green building sector; design, technologies and equipment options for energy efficient buildings; intelligent water management; emerging building related policies and regulations and more. The nuances of these aspects would be elaborated through case studies and examples from across the country. To enable rooted learning across the table, the participants would be presenting and sharing their learning and perspectives based on the visits and lectures.

The interactive modules are designed to encourage participants to acquire a 360 degree understanding and hands-on experience to look for their own solutions for designing better buildings. 

The programme will be conducted by eminent architects, energy and building experts and CSE professionals.
