Green Building: Construction Administration


In this module we will review the construction and demolition debris that is transported into the waste streams generated by new construction, by renovation, and by the demolition of existing buildings.

Building construction and renovation activities alter the urban environment, generating noise, waste, and air pollution that can stress the building's occupants and neighbors.

In particular, construction and demolition (C&D) waste has become an increasing environmental and municipal burden, equaling up to 30% of the municipal solid waste stream. The majority of this waste is generally disposed of by private haulers engaged by demolition subcontractors and land filled in or out of state, at increasing cost to taxpayers. The strategies that follow can reduce the amount of C&D waste generated at the start.


Upon completion of this online course, students will have a better understanding of high performance construction practices that can help reduce adverse effects during construction while improving the building's long-term environmental performance.


This online course does not include formal evaluation, but does encourage students to self-direct their own assessment and examination of the information covered throughout the duration of the program.
