AIA+2030 Professional Series

The AIA+2030 Professional Series will not take place in it's usual format in 2014. Stay tuned for more information.

AIA+2030 In January 2011, AIA Denver launched the AIA+2030 Professional Series, which is designed to help professionals create buildings that meet the ambitious energy efficiency goals of the Architecture 2030 Challenge®. This series offers strategies to reach 60-100% reduction in fossil fuel greenhouse gas emissions, giving design professionals the knowledge and leverage to create next-generation, super-efficient buildings—and provides individuals with the skills that will set them apart in the marketplace.

Sessions are led by experts from academia and active practice, and feature regional case studies to illustrate concepts and lessons learned. This series is intended for participants who have at least an intermediate understanding of the suite of energy efficiency strategies and technologies available to design professionals. Session information is cumulative and aims to provide an overall understanding of specific design strategies and how that can be integrated to provide optimal results. Participants will be provided with tools to take back to their firms to help share and implement the knowledge and skills gained.
