I enjoyed that I was able to explore building science concepts and net-zero applications at my own pace. The course covered a wide variety of subjects and provided a depth of knowledge building resources to hone in on each subject.

Excellent way to learn about designing zero net-energy buildings and how to avoid construction mistakes.

Great course that teaches you how to see both the forest and the trees. It equips you with an understanding of the general building science principles and the ability to locate/interpret/use specific technical resources for real world application.

This course should be a part of the core curriculum for every architectural college in America. This is foundational information that every architect should have. Marc does a masterful job of bringing together, in one well designed course, a broad spectrum of knowledge, experience and wisdom, with a dash of Marc's wit and humor. For what we are up to at Architectural Resource, this course was spot on. Thank you for your contribution to our industry, Marc. Bravo!

Don't take this course! You'll become an addicted energy junky and want more, and more, and more..... seriously, its the best!

by Spencer Richland, Architectural Designer 06/03/2016

The 10 week format along with terrific information was perfect for my situation of needing flexibility and time to digest and apply this information in a real world project. Thanks for the extension to June 3 by the way, it was perfect!

Excellent primer and extensive overview of NZE Homes! Instructor Marc Rosenberg openly shares his extensive knowledge of the design and construction elements for creating a successful outcome to various building challenges be it "new construction" or retrofit modifications. Be prepared to learn a lot.

Marc's course greatly expanded my understanding of energy use in buildings and the potential of super insulated, low energy homes. The tools, materials, and guidance Marc offers in this course are indispensable to anyone in the trade. I highly recommend it!

Marc is a wonderful teacher and communicator. If the construction industry is going to change to high performance construction, we need to make sure certain key concepts become the new norm. Marc is clearly a forerunner in creating this new path. If he had an sequel to this course, I would take it.

by Matthew Bartle, Project Manager, Hayward Design Build 11/24/2015

Marc knows his stuff. Building science is ever evolving, yet Marc describes the basics and their real world applications in great detail. Building smart means saving energy dollars down the road. Marc lives and breathes these ideas and shows simple ways to implement them in everyday construction.

Great class to bring you up to speed on net zero energy houses and how to build them.

M.R. cuts thru the obfuscation of the Zero Net Energy Home conundrum like a finely honed hardened steel cleaver arcing thru the air and slicing thru a piece of nice warm brie, effortlessly getting to the heart of the matter.......only with a lot less mess!

by Mark Graham, Principal, Liminal Architecture 11/19/2015

I would recommend this course to anyone interested in sustainable architecture.
