How to Leverage Piping Systems to Increase Building Sustainability

Start Date: On Demand Until December 14, 2018

Duration:60 minutes

Abstract:

When it comes to sustainable buildings, much thought often goes into the building envelope, the HVAC systems, solar panels, daylighting, and other high-profile areas. But what about the components that aren’t as visible? Though they remain largely unseen behind the walls, piping systems play an integral role in achieving sustainable design goals. Choice of piping touches several aspects of sustainability, including water quality, resource management, and even energy use. This webinar will educate attendees on how to leverage piping material choices to understand life cycle assessment, earn LEED credits, improve energy efficiency, and ensure occupant health.

Learning objectives:

  • Attendees will understand the role of piping systems in sustainably built structures.
  • Attendees will learn about life-cycle assessment for CPVC piping material and why life-cycle thinking is so important.
  • Attendees will understand how to earn LEED credits via piping material and design.
  • Attendees will gain insights on the potential future of piping and sustainability.
