AIA+2030/SB 2030 Professional Design Series
Prepare your firm and career for the new energy frontier

The AIA+2030/SB 2030 Professional Series helps design professionals create buildings that meet the ambitious energy efficiency goals of the 2030 Challenge. 10 four-hour sessions offer strategies to reach 50% reduction in fossil fuel greenhouse gas emissions, giving design professionals the knowledge and leverage to create next-generation, super-efficient buildings—and provide firms with the skills that will set them apart in the marketplace. During the AIA+2030 series, a special emphasis where appropriate will be place on the means of compliance with the State of Minnesota: Sustainable Building 2030. In addition to the entire series, an new module will be created to assist the design professional in helping building owners strive to meet higher and higher energy conservation goals.

Sessions assume participants have a beginning and intermediate understanding of the suite of energy efficiency strategies and technologies available to a design professional. Session information is cumulative and aims to provide an overall understanding of specific design strategies and how they can be integrated to provide optimal results. Upper Midwest region case studies will illustrate concepts and lessons learned. Experts from both academia and active practice will lead the sessions. Participants will be provided tools to take back to their firms to help share and implement the knowledge and skills gained.

The first session will be limited to 50 seats in order to maximize group learning and information transfer. The entire curriculum will be established for multiple teaching opportunities when future demand requires it. While it is highly recommended that individuals experience the series in its entirety, individual class seats will be released if space permits.


10 four-hour sessions take place on Fridays from February 8 through April 26, 12:30 to 4:30 PM. No sessions March 22 or 29.

Each of the sessions is approved for 4 AIA LU HSW/SD. If you complete all ten sessions you will earn 40 AIA LU HSW/SD and receive a certificate stating that you completed the AIA+2030/SB2030 Training.
