Event description
Flooring installations systems are not the same as a few years ago with sustainability programs. Learn these changes and how they affect you

About this Event

Flooring Installation systems of today are not the same as a few years ago—with programs such as LEEDv4, Living Building Challenge and Delos WELL Building Standard have challenged both the building product manufacturer and the installer to re-think the entire floor covering installation layering system. This trend away from recycled content and regional manufacturing to product ‘transparency’ (reducing hazardous ingredients and minimizing pollution and waste) requires manufacturers to effectively communicate this data—programs such as Health Product Declarations (HPD), Cradle to Cradle (C2C), Manufacturer Inventory (MI), Environmental Product Declarations (EPD) and ANSI A138.1 GreenSquared Certified and VOC emission (In-house or third-party certified per CA-DPH; Section 01350). As ‘transparency’ becomes the ‘new norm’ for doing business, it requires all 'stake holders' working on a tile project to make informed decisions —based both on performance and product transparency.

Learning Objectives

1. How do Green Programs such as LEEDv4, Living Building Challenge, WELL Building, impact design and installation?

2. LCAs, EPDs, HPDs & VOC emission –What are they? And how are they changing the ‘Green Landscape’?

3. Where is the Construction Industry headed in terms of ‘Sustainability/Transparency’? How can it affect the designer? the specifier? the Installer?

4. How can design, installation methods and practices’ influence indoor air quality?
