• Lesson 2.2 Cost and Efficiency Analysis

    In this lesson students investigate the cost of construction and the recurring energy costs associated with design decisions and construction techniques. Students will have the opportunity to perform quantity take-offs and cost estimates related to parts of small construction projects. In addition students will learn about and compare the energy efficiency of a variety of construction materials and calculate the rate of heat loss or gain through a building envelope which can be used to estimate energy demands for heating and cooling a building.
