Hi all, This is my first time on this forum.
I am writing for some quick advice on how to get my feet wet as a
sustainable building professional. Although I have taken Architecture
and Landscape Architecture classes, I think my nature and skills lend
themselves to more hands-on work and project management. This winter
I will begin prerequisite classes for a eventual Masters in Construction Management (at U Washington). I won't be able to attend any schools far from Seattle.
While I feel this type of course work will teach me the skills for a
career in Construction, I don't think it will address
sustainable/green building practices. Do you have any suggestions for
me as to how I may get exposure to sustainable building practices? Do
you think that a Masters in Construction Management will help me in
landing a job as a sustainable building professional? Or should I go
another route (Urban Planning). This will be a career change for me from Project
Management/Consulting in the healthcare sector.
Thanks for taking the time to read my post, I am not sure where else to go for advice. Any feedback would be worth gold to me.
