Our Courses

* All MASA courses are AIA accredited and carry 1 AIA LU/HSW credit

Where Sustainability Meets Innovation
AIA 6120.5.2020; GBCI 0920023125
1 AIA HSW credit; 1 GBCI credit

This course discusses the impact of buildings on the natural environment and offers insight on designing to minimize those impacts. The discussion emphasizes implementing design methods including specification of technologies such as sun shade and daylighting canopy systems, as well as materials that contain recycled content. Designing as part of a holistic building environment is critical to optimizing energy performance and reducing extraction of natural resources for building materials. LEED credits associated with specifying aluminum sun shade systems are also discussed.

Don’t’ Wait: A Canopy Prep Timeline
AIA 6120.4.2019
1 AIA HSW credit

Canopy systems are important additions to the building envelope, as well as providing a beautiful, unique aesthetic. Additionally, canopy systems require proper planning, knowledge, and a well-kept timeline. Architectural choices should drive the project, and as a result, the cost. In order to achieve the full environmental and green building benefits provided by a canopy system, all details must be worked out early and completely. In this program we’ll discuss the importance of knowledge in the planning stages for canopy systems, which includes stylistic and structural elements. We will also discuss structure, attachment, drainage, and other vital operational considerations.

Daylighting by Design
AIA 6120.3.2018; GBCI 0920017566
1 AIA HSW credit; 1 GBCI credit

This course discusses the benefits of a thoughtfully-designed light control system and how to make it work for your project’s natural lighting and shading needs. The discussion emphasizes implementing design methods including specification of technologies such as sun shade and canopy systems that create useful and aesthetically-pleasing daylighting systems. Additionally, designing to not only minimize solar heat gain and sunlight, but to successfully repurpose it for greater environmental and aesthetic function. LEED credits associated with specifying sun shade and daylighting canopy systems are also discussed.
