LEED Pilot Credit #103: Integrative Analysis of Building Materials

11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

In the materials selection process, builders seek to balance numerous product performance attributes, including durability, aesthetics and health, safety and environmental impacts. Transparency and life cycle thinking are central components of a robust materials selection process, one that enables builders to choose the most appropriate materials for their project. The U.S. Green Building Council now offers an innovative LEED pilot credit (#103), Integrative Analysis of Building Materials, to encourage building project teams to evaluate products and materials using available life cycle information to identify those that have positive environmental, health and safety impacts. The credit informs project team decisions by providing access to information shared by building materials manufacturers on their product’s life cycle impacts.

Vinyl in Design: The Material for21st Century Building & Construction

01:10 PM - 02:10 PM

Vinyl plays a major role in the design and construction of modern buildings. It contributes to sustainability, wellness and resilience of people and their communities.
This session will demonstrate the importance of achieving client performance goals using thoughtful, multi-attribute material selection criteria.
Learning Objectives:
1. How vinyl is made, most versatile plastic in construction
2. Three parts of sustainability, how resilience enables people and communities to bounce back
3. Understanding disclosure and optimization, selection criteria, hazard, exposure, risk
4. Role of materials in health and wellness
5. Industry improvements, best practice, aspirations for a sustainable future

Eliminating Concrete Moisture through Sustainable Design

02:20 PM - 03:20 PM

Few aspects of the design process are conducted in “silos” as disassociated from one another as how many projects approach interior concrete slab specifications and subsequent flooring specification sections. This is not done intentionally, rather it is by-product of lack of coordination, and fundamental misunderstanding, between those involved with the structural elements and those involved with the aesthetic and finishing elements. During this presentation, we will discuss sustainability and what it means; drawing the attendee into a clear discussion of how sustainability relates to LEED, Lean Construction, Green Building, and process improvement. Inconsistencies with current specification processes related to concrete moisture as compared to the tenets of sustainability will be exposed, with clear recommendations given as to how the specifying professional can resolve those disconnects.
