ATAS announces AIA sustainable design credit

ATAS International Inc., a leading manufacturer of metal roofing, wall panels and accessories, has announced it now offers an AIA/CES Sustainable Design (SD) Course that can provide 1 learning unit (LU) hour  towards the health, safety, and welfare (HSW) requirement for continuing education. The AIA requires members to earn 8 of the basic LU hour requirements in the
area of HSW and designates that four of the total hours be in the subset of Sustainable Design.  
The “Energy Efficient Building Envelope Technology” course was developed by ATAS to help architects understand that green building is realistic with metal.  By the end of the lessons architects should be able to demonstrate an improved understating while learning how metal cladding on roofs and walls can contribute to a sustainable building initiative.  Concepts and technology of a Building Integrated Photovoltaic System (BIPV), the combination of solar reflectance and thermal emiitance with Above Sheathing Ventilation (ASV) for Cool Metal Roofing and the function of Transpired Solar Collectors are reviewed. 
ATAS understands environmental responsibility and has developed this course to demonstrate their commitment to green building practices and continuing education. While strongly believing in the new Sustainable Design Course requirement, ATAS offers other continuing education credits.  For more information, visit the ATAS website at or call 800.468.1441 to speak with a representative.
