Learn more about the benefits of designing for human health and well-being during a Thursday, Jan. 26 evening seminar in Indianapolis led by YR&G's Senior Sustainability Manager John Mlade (LEED Fellow, WELL AP, Living Future Accredited) and hosted by USGBC Indiana's Central Branch.

Health Positive has re-emerged as a major design driver. Reaching far beyond life safety considerations, this presentation will address current ideas and trends that have the potential to reframe our conversations with peers, project teams and clients.

From materials selection through active design, using health as a framework can help justify and expedite the pursuit of sustainable design while also adding a long-missing and much-needed dimension of sustainability – sustainability of ourselves and our communities.

The WELL Building Standard, geared exclusively toward occupant health and well-being, along with relevant aspects of LEED v4 and the Living Building Challenge will be discussed.

Space is limited — only 30 spots are available. GBCI and AIA credits will be provided. For more information, contact Anna Waggoner.

Metered street parking is available.
