Event Notes:

Topic: A Healthier Shade of Green: Designing & Building to Lesson Toxic Loads

We will go beyond IAQ to look at a much fuller scope of Indoor Environmental Quality, with the health and wellbeing of those who will live in the home, those who will be on the work site and of all life on the planet in mind. We'll cover some of the many current 'green building' health liabilities and their antidotes! Any questions or experiences you'd like to share as builders and design professionals are most welcome in this interactive discussion.
