Multifamily housing remains a big part of the construction market, even though it experiences some ebbs and flows in production and some regional variations. Building owners and residents continue to require quality and even luxury features but at a reasonable cost. Architects and other design team members who can identify the best ways to provide such amenities while controlling costs, including some of the techniques discussed in this course, increase the likelihood for successful projects and repeat work with building owners or developers.

Peter J. Arsenault, FAIA, NCARB, LEED AP, is a practicing architect, green building consultant, continuing education presenter, and prolific author engaged nationwide in advancing building performance through better design.
