Description

The CREST is designed to help usher in a transformational approach to the design of the built environment in India. We are responding to the urgent need to train a generation of architects, engineers and other built environment professionals in meeting the triple challenge of climate resilience, energy security and health in the built environment.

This workshop will cover concepts like

  • Designing for climate
    change and extreme events
  • Low carbon development
  • Thermal and visual comfort
  • Low-carbon cooling
  • Life cycle assessment
  • Renewable energy systems
  • Modelling and simulation tools, including the new
    free ZEBRA tool.

Mode of workshop: Online
