REGREEN Implementation Workshop: Minneapolis
Thursday, March 20, 2014 from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM (CDT)
Course Description: The REGREEN Implementation Workshop is based on the REGREEN Residential Remodeling Guidelines©, a set of sustainability best practices that emphasize green product selection, team integration and whole-systems thinking. Filling a unique niche in the marketplace, REGREEN is designed for professionals who want to create sustainable, healthy interiors through single-scope projects such as a kitchen or bath remodel, as well as a whole-house gut rehab or historic renovation.
The new interiors-focused practicum was developed by American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) to address the industry-specific challenges interior designers face when renovating a client space. The full-day course offers practical tools and in-depth applications to prepare designers to make sustainable retrofit decisions that save money, improve home performance and contribute to healthy interiors. Building on foundational knowledge from the REGREEN Guidelines, the workshop employs faculty-led instruction and team charrettes for a fast-paced, information-filled day that will transform your design practice. Taught by veteran interior designer Annette Stelmack, Allied ASID, LEED AP BD+C, sustainable design consultant at Inspirit-llc and co-author of Sustainable Residential Interiors, the workshop is the capstone course in the REGREEN Trained certificate program.
CEU Credit: This 300-level workshop offers 0.8 health/safety/welfare CEU (IDCEC), which are also applicable to LEED credential maintenance (not LEED-specific). Attendees of the workshop will receive 0.8 CEU credits upon completion.
Requirements: It is suggested that you complete the prerequisite course "REGREEN: A Guide for REGREEN Remodeling Projects" prior to the workshop so that you are familiar with the REGREEN Residential Remodeling Guidelines© and REGREEN Strategy Generator. It is a self-paced, online e-learning module that is available 24/7 and takes approximately two hours to complete. The prerequisite offers 0.2 CEU (IDCEC) and costs $59.99 ($39.99 ASID members).
