Building Performance Analysis and Carbon Footprint

Green Building Studio is launching a BIM platform independent training course focusing on hands on approach in integrating the existing available software within the context of Building Performance Analysis. The name of the course is “Carbon Neutral Building Design” and if you long to find more about it, the course outline is posted on their web.
