EmiratesGBC is offering a pilot introductory workshop at Energy Efficiency Expo 2017 of its Building Retrofit Training Program.
The workshops each will provide two hours of instructional exercises which cover viable building retrofit and sustainability methods that are tried and tested in the UAE. These methods have proven to bring in reductions in energy and water use. Additionally, through interactive discussion and dialogue, the BRT program teaser will also guide participants through various methods that improve indoor air and environmental quality and improve operational efficiency in new and existing buildings.
Seating is limited so please register early.
The EmiratesGBC Building Retrofit Training Program (BRT) aims to support federal and local government mandates with regards to improved energy efficiency in existing as well as new buildings in the UAE. The training program offers 72 hours of instruction divided into two levels of curricula and caters to participants with varying levels of technical background, experience and competency. The BRT workshop curriculum is divided into Level One and Level Two and is based on the EmiratesGBC Technical Guidelines for Retrofitting Existing Buildings publication, which serves as a textbook for the training program. The Technical Guidelines have been officially endorsed by the Ministry of Infrastructure and Development and the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy. The content provides detailed introduction and methodology for implementing 32 building retrofit methods in the UAE. In addition to supporting government mandates, incentives and goals, the BRT primarily aims to:
1) Bridge the knowledge and communication gap between all level of stakeholders in the UAE building industry, and
2) Through concerted effort in education and awareness training, drive the demand for implementing building efficiency among key stakeholders who enjoy a professional or personal decision-making role with regard to their building/facility.
