{Past Event} - Green Building Series: 'How To' Achieve Materials & Resources Credits

September 7, 2007 - 1:30 pm - September 7, 2007 - 1:30 pm -- Eastern Standard Time


A panel discussion of professionals who will recount how they achieved specific Materials & Resources strategies on a project, from schematic design through construction. Construction: Recycling waste during construction and after occupancy requires significant planning of procedure and space. Rapidly renewable products are available for use in cabinetry, floor finishes, and wall finishes. Products with recycled content reduce the carbon footprint of a project by reducing consumption of raw materials and the energy required in their manufacture. Materials: Understand the “integrated” nature of the GGHC. Create tools to define “multi-attribute” products. Craft Division 01 documents to satisfy credits. Mercury in Fluorescent Lamps: Develop bid specifications and contracts for high-performance, low-mercury lighting equipment. Use the contracting process to facilitate manufacturer disclosure of hazardous materials in lighting equipment as well the recycling of fluorescent tubes and other mercury-containing lamps used in commercial and institutional facilities.
