Tracking Tools for One and All: Material Palette Review and Product Guides

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

We need to find better building materials. Architects use building materials to create their masterpieces. With our now increased understanding of material content through the material transparency movement, we must re-assess our material choices in service to improving our selection process. Having the right tools are critical to improving our decisions. A Material Palette Review Doc is the first step; that can lead to product guide development; both tools are a solid way to improve your team's knowledge base and building material choices.

This session is approved for the following continuing education credits:
  • 1 LFA General credit
  • 1 AIA LU | HSW credit
