There is an overwhelming number of materials used in our buildings, and as people concerned with the impact of buildings on human and environmental health, we’d like to know as much about those materials as possible. Understanding both the requirements for the Building Disclosure and Optimization credits and the strategies behind them will open the door to the world of material health and the standards, screening tools, product certifications and product libraries that will guide you. This course will help you understand that world.

  2. Be prepared to utilize industry resources to promote better environmental and health based decisions for materials
  3. Explore how LEED® v4 materials credits can be integrated into projects and work flow
  4. Apply skills learned in this course to a future LEED project
