2. Evaluate manufacturers’ information about building materials and FF&E to identify independent, trusted sources.

3. Develop and apply a rigorous protocol for vetting a product’s ingredients and environmental impact.

4. Analyze the trade-offs associated with building materials and FF&E that contain chemicals of concern and develop a set of priorities for specifying them in a project that is customized to the client and site.


Course Description

How the Experts Specify Healthier Materials takes an in-depth look at steps interior designers can take to vet the ingredients of building materials and furniture, fixtures, and equipment (FF&E) for their impact on human health and the environment. It will present in depth case studies of two recent projects that applied the highest standards of healthy materials selection: the VanDusen Botanical Garden in Vancouver, Canada, and the Google headquarters in Mountain View, California. The course will explain the trade-offs associated with chemicals of concern, illustrating how to develop a set of priorities for specifying building materials and FF&E that contain them. The presenters will share their lessons learned about creating a customizable protocol for analyzing a material’s attributes, preparing designers to create healthier, more environmentally-preferable interiors.

This course is IDCEC approved for 0.1 CEU.
