Spotlight on Sustainable Products: Designing Spaces for Work, Live and Play



Course Description:
Architectural Systems has refreshed and updated its engaging presentation on the application of sustainable interior finishes in contract environments. This course will show how the “green” movement has led to advancements in the design of these materials, a new sensibility surrounding sustainable building, and the influence on factories to be more socially responsible in their manufacturing practices.

The US Green Building Council’s LEED rating system will be defined as  how it applies to material selection. With the use of compelling case studies representing the spaces in which we work, live and play,  explore the criteria for sustainable materials and how integrating them can meet design, performance and LEED®requirements.
