How to evaluate the sustainability of architectural products

Credits: 1 hour of AIA Health, Safety, Welfare Credit

About the Course:

This course helps designers cut through the noise and focus on two key frameworks for evaluating architectural product sustainability.

Attendees will learn how leverage these frameworks to design healthier and more environmentally friendly spaces.
