SAVANNAH—Building on its popular solar energy and historic preservation programs, Savannah Technical College will offer a Green Building program beginning this fall featuring prominent leaders in the green-building industry as faculty members. The 16-hour certificate program will include an introduction to green building technology, energy measures and efficiency, energy efficient mechanical systems and green building construction techniques.
Patrick Shay, principal of Gunn, Meyerhoff and Shay architects, will teach Introduction to Green Building; Bobby Keel, retired inspector for the City of Savannah and formerly of Greenline Architects will teach Green Building Construction; and, William Kimbrough, director of engineering for K&K Engineering will teach the two energy-related classes.
“This is an important step for Savannah Technical College,” said STC President Kathy S. Love. “We’re embracing green technology in many ways — solar energy, historic preservation and now green building technology. We’ll be adding wind energy technology soon. I’m proud that we’re quickly becoming a leader in this emerging field.”
The Green Building Technician Certificate program can be completed in two quarters. This fall, classes will be offered Monday-Thursday evenings from 5:30-8:30 p.m. at the college’s Savannah Campus, 5717 White Bluff Rd. http://www.savannahtech.edu/cwo/Industrial_and_Public_Service/Green_Building Classes begin Sept. 29.
