New York City faces challenges resulting from a rapidly changing climate. Many capital projects, including infrastructure, landscapes, and buildings, will experience flooding, precipitation, and heat events. Climate Ready Buildings is a free, online training developed by the Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) for HPD-financed projects. This training incorporates climate ready principles from NYC’s Climate Resiliency Design Guidelines. The primary topic areas covered are: climate change, resiliency, energy performance, integrated design process, best practices.

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. The training is also optional for other HPD Preservation Programs. A certificate of completion will be issued after completing the training. The certificate is valid for two years, after which it can be renewed by taking the Climate Ready Buildings training.
