Presented by Roppe Corporation
Course Description: Architects and designers face specific challenges when selecting flooring products for healthcare facilities. For most people, 2020 was their first experience with a pandemic that can endanger lives and cripple economies across the globe, and it has certainly increased awareness and diligence when it comes to all things that can affect human health, including material ingredient management. Prior to the recent pandemic, material health was already a hot topic among many industry professionals. We can reasonably expect those conversations to become more prevalent and the hunt for healthy, sustainable building materials to expand as we seek out ways to protect ourselves in various environments.
After this session you will be able to:
- Develop an understanding for various ASTM standards that can help with product comparisons
- Explore which types of resilient flooring are most appropriate for a variety of occupied spaces
- Explain a range of available documentation and the relevance to material health
- Discover the impact that choosing healthy, sustainable products can have on building occupants
