AIA Pittsburgh, a chapter of the American Institute of Architects, with its Committee on the Environment (COTE), is pleased to present a new series entitled COTE Intensives. These lectures/workshops are designed to dive deeply into various sustainability topics of interest.

Intensive I

Presenters Dr. Robert Sroufe, Duquesne University, and Michael Carnahan, Scalo Solar, will discuss financial decision-making for sustainable design strategies in projects. Take an extended look into financing strategies that allow sustainability and high performance design features to be evaluated and incorporated into projects.  The delivery cycle of design, construction and operation will be explored in order to lend perspective in prioritizing sustainability measures.  Financing structures, tax implications, depreciation, incentives, rating systems and renewable energy strategies will be covered by concepts in lecture as well as in regional and national case studies. Concepts will be presented and bolstered by real case studies. The session will take place at Carnegie Mellon University and will include a light supper.
