Old Westbury, N.Y. (July 7, 2011) – NYIT will meet the demands of the growing, multi-billion-dollar green building market by training professionals in sustainable building practices.

The nine-month Sustainable Building Adviser Course will be offered at NYIT starting in Sept. 2011, for professionals in the fields of architecture, engineering, construction, real estate development, building, facilities management, utilities, and municipalities.

The U.S. green building market increased by 50 percent from 2008 to 2010, according to McGraw-Hill Construction’s Green Outlook. It is expected to reach $135 billion by 2015. Under the direction of NYIT’s expert instructors, professionals will be able to identify key practices of sustainable building, analyze costs and benefits of sustainable building measures, set a sustainable design goal for project development, and more.

Course content will address many types of construction and development through an interactive format with discussion-driven presentations. Participants and instructors will also visit exemplary projects.

An information session will be held on Wednesday, July 27, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in Anna Rubin Hall, room 303 at NYIT’s Old Westbury campus.

To R.S.V.P. for the information session, please contact Jannette Knowles at 516.686.7491or For more information about the program, visit
