Course on Sustainability & Energy Modeling of Traditional Architecture at NIT Calicut [May 25-30]: Registrations Open

About the Course

The tremendous urban infrastructure development worldwide, especially in developing countries necessitates sustainability and energy audit to minimize environmental and economic concerns, while leading to the social good. The design and construction of buildings have been evolved historically within societal cultural context.
Innovations within the building industry have advanced over the years with the discovery of new materials, new methods of structural and thermal analysis, the human-technology interventions, energy crisis and concerns on issues of climate change.
The mining, manufacturing and transporting of materials consumes lot of energy which contribute to environmental pollution. The environmental/ ecological issues and calamities are at rise often due to inefficient and unscientific building construction practices. It is imperative to apply sustainability concepts and energy-efficient alternatives in building construction for future.
