AIA CES Approved Course: A Fresh Look at Green Facades and Trellises

Gain a better understanding of how to incorporate a green facade or trellis into your project, the factors to be considered in the design, and the process for developing, specifying and justifying projects containing facade greening.

Using plants as a façade treatment brings forward a number of potential social, environmental and health benefits, as well as a few challenges. This course will give you some ideas on what is possible and then, using real-world examples, provide you with the tools you need to develop and then define a potential façade greening or trellis project. At the completion of this course, you will have a better understanding of how to incorporate a green facade or trellis into your project, the factors to be considered in the design, and the process for developing, specifying and justifying project containing façade greening.

 

 

Learning Objectives:

  • Upon completion, participants will be able to list some of the benefits of greening systems in the urban environment
  • Upon completion, participants will have an understanding of the different forms that that greening/trellises can take, based on project examples.
  • Upon completion, participants will have an understanding of the factors which need to be considered during the design of greening systems. Participants will gain a better understanding of the steps involved in developing a greening project using the project examples provided.
  • Upon completion, participants will have an understanding of How to Overcome Resistance to this Concept, Justify Costs, and Identify Pay Back
