Waste Management by Design: Designing Buildings to Optimize Environmental Performance During Construction and During Occupancy

Building owners are increasingly seeking out new methods and technologies for handling their waste streams in order to minimize the amount they need to send to landfills. This course describes a series of strategies that architects can use to help their clients manage waste sustainably – and reduce their waste management costs – by design. The course reviews a systems-based approach to planning for the diversion and/or recycling of waste products during construction; discusses what types of waste can be recycled and where it goes; describes the role that architects can play in designing facilities to optimize waste management after occupancy; and reviews how effective waste management plans can earn LEED points during construction and after occupancy.
