How is advanced materials selection driving the design process? What are current considerations and challenges for materials selection? We will explore the materials transparency landscape, its relation to healthy materials, available tools for designers, and case studies from manufacturers through design implementation using LEED v4 as a guide. Participants will be better prepared to navigate the evolving building materials landscape, including available resources, databases and processes to effectively earn LEED v4 MR credits. 

This program will qualify for 1.25 AIA and GBCI CE hours.
