Materials Transparency: Choosing Better Products for Your High-Performing Building
High performance buildings products create sustainable buildings but often contain materials that also create adverse effects, such as natural resource depletion, pollution, and exposure to harmful chemicals. As a result, transparency is becoming a primary objective of ambitious teams who want both high efficiency and healthy buildings.
Join us for a hands-on, full day workshop to develop a tool-kit for product selection. The presenters will draw on their collective experience to discuss impediments for specifying “ideal” materials, and how project teams can devise a framework from which to make choices, and a “how-to” approach for researching products.
