Green Building: Material and Product Selection

Provider: Mason Contractors Association of America
Discipline: General
Credits: 1.00

In this module we will reivew the process of selecting materials and products for high performance buildings involves consideration of environmental and health issues in addition to more traditional criteria such as cost, durability, performance, and aesthetics. While methods for evaluating products based on these criteria are still evolving, the number of available building products with improved environmental and health characteristics has been steadily increasing. Markets are responding to meet the demands of government, businesses, and consumers who are increasingly aware of health and environmental concerns. Because of the complexities surrounding evaluation of appropriate materials, consultants should have a working familiarity with the key health and environmental issues associated with specific material types. This dynamic and growing field includes new concepts in materials assessment such as embodied energy and product life cycle assessment.
