Green Building Curriculum

In partnership with BIAHawaii the Building Industry Association (BIA) of Hawai’i, O’Brien & Company has developed a green building training curriculum for the State. The content includes green building fundamentals for pre-apprentices and apprentices, green building practices for general contractors, and journey worker technical modules with in-depth information on trade-specific green building techniques.

To make sure work products are technically accurate and responsive to current building industry conditions in Hawai’i, O’Brien & Company worked with a Technical Advisory Committee and several focus groups to identify green building needs and existing resources in the trades.

The final product is a set of flexible teaching materials including videos, activities and lesson plans, that will be used by construction academies, colleges, unions and other trade and educational organizations to train people in Hawaii how to build cutting-edge green buildings.
