To support you and your education, BCIT is adapting applied learning in formats appropriate to the unfolding global situation. All PTS classes are being delivered in an online format unless you are notified otherwise.
This course provides the basis for understanding green wall technologies: living walls and green facades. Students will acquire the knowledge to decide which technology is best to “green” a specific wall. They will also acquire a good understanding of the different components involved in designing, planning, and installing these leading-edge technologies. In addition, students will learn about plant choices, growing medium, irrigation, job-site logistics, maintenance, and team management to guarantee the long-term viability of a green wall project. Students will participate in group discussions and in-class activities. Throughout the course, students will work on an individual course project.
