The Not-Quite-Edible House: Making Healthy Material Choices

03/08/2018 - 15:30 to 17:00
3:30 pm to 5:00 pm

Homeowners, builders, and architects are taking more interest in healthier places to live in and work. Research backs this up and points towards a need for wiser material and design choices. Many decisions need to be during the design phase, while others come much later, and everyone in the project team must be on board. With so many competing product certifications and building rating systems, how does one makes sense of it all? This session outlines key strategies to help your team make informed decisions around building assemblies, products, and finishes. Whether you’re looking for simple, low-cost upgrades for a remodeling project or building new for a client with allergies or chemical sensitivities, you’ll walk away with new ideas to put into practice.
