Course outline

Anthony Nolan is an acknowledged industry leader in integrating environmental sustainability and architecture. His background as an architect (he is a director at Kennedy Associates Architects) also overlapped with being initally a NatHERS and then an AccuRate Assessor. He has also been a member of the ABSA Board.

He was motivated to prepare this course because he consistently observed that architecturally designed buildings performed poorly when rated by thermal modeling tools.
