2014 PDC Summit

Spring Cleaning: Using the New Health Product Declaration to Scour for Materials and Products

Mar 18, 2014 8:15am ‐ Mar 18, 2014 9:15am

Standard: $30.00
Members: $15.00

Description

Building materials are complex. Finding the best products to meet specifications can feel as overwhelming as cleaning out your closet. The Health Product Declaration (HPD) can help designers and building owners refine the material selection process for healthier buildings. Discussion includes how the HPD creates a common language and integrates with LEED v4™'s new materials and resources (MR) credit, the Living Building Challenge Materials Red List. This session will provide attendees with a template to guide manufacturer conversations and will enable them to:

  • Examine information on why the HPD was developed; why it is needed, who piloted it, and what challenges have arisen.
  • Explore the building materials ecosystem and the correlation between building products and human health.
  • Apply the HPD to document compliance with building rating systems such as LEED v4 and the Living Building Challenge.
  • Use the HPD to comply with green building certification systems, including the USGBCU™'s MRc4 in LEED v4, and progressive client standards and requirements.

Speaker(s):

  • Eden Brukman, RA, Technical Director, Health Product Declaration Collaborative
  • Jean Hansen, FIDA, LEED Fellow, CID, EDAC, AAHID, Senior Professional Associate, Sustainable Interiors Manager, HDR Architecture, Inc.
  • Robert Phinney, AIA, PMP, ENV SP, LEED AP, BD+C, ID+C, HDR Architecture, Inc.
