Bird Safe Design: Strategies for Designing Bird-Friendly Buildings

March 17 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

** “Bird Safe Design” will now be hosted virtually in response to the increasing spread of the novel coronavirus/COVID-19. Registered attendees will receive their Zoom meeting link a few days before March 17th. **

This class will review the science that explains bird collisions, how to recognize hazards present in the built environment, and a range of building designs that illustrate solutions. These case studies will explore many of the available strategies for reducing bird mortality; these bird-friendly strategies oftentimes bring additional value to design decisions for heat, light, and security. We will review regulations connected to bird-friendly design, including the use of the LEED credit as well as current legislation that mandates safer design for birds. Techniques now in use for evaluating the relative threat level to birds of different materials are also described in this course, along with typical results.

Course objectives:

● Identify and apply current best practices in reducing bird collisions in new design
● Integrate bird-friendly architecture with other aspects of green design
● Understand existing and potential legislation mandating bird-friendly design
● Use LEED Pilot Credit #55: Reducing Bird Collisions
