A Sustainable Practices Program Course http://sustainable.colorado.edu/ In the built environment, sustainability equals a better, more enjoyable standard of living for less money, energy, and impact on nature and other people. This course provides participants with the knowledge of how to design and build sustainable, high performance buildings that are mainstream in their appeal and appearance. We define sustainable buildings as those that use less resources and energy in not only the construction phase, but over the lifetime of the building as well.
