Climate Ready Buildings: Integrating Resilient & High Performance Design Strategies in Affordable Housing
Date:
Time: 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Location: Virtual

New York City faces challenges resulting from a rapidly changing climate – buildings are facing increasing impacts from flooding, precipitation, and heat events. In addition, New York City has created some of the most ambitious climate legislation in the world, requiring that buildings drastically reduce energy use and carbon emissions while addressing increasing climate hazards.

Climate Ready Buildings is a free, online training developed by the Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) for HPD-financed projects. This training will help building owners, designers and builders understand NYC’s climate laws and HPD’s new design requirements, and will demonstrate strategies for high-performance, resilient, and healthy affordable housing. The training will cover building electrification, Passive House principles, NYC’s Climate Resiliency Design Guidelines (the CRDG), and Integrated Design Practices (IDP). In addition, the training includes a compelling case study about one of HPD’s most innovative Climate Ready buildings built to date.

Who Should Take This Training
This training is intended for architects, general contractors and building owners/developers. This training is a pre-requisite to the certification process for the Enterprise Green Communities Criteria for HPD-financed projects, but is open to anybody who wishes to learn more about Climate Ready Buildings. A certificate of completion will be issued after completing the training. The certificate is valid for two years.
