Transparency and Material Health “In Practice” – Accessing and Using Transparency and Material Health information
This discussion provides an overview of transparency reports and material health databases and libraries available for use by architecture and design practices. Our panelists share their practical approaches to integrating these tools and information with their existing firm libraries. They also address the techniques they have used to prepare design professionals, through education and practice, to use these tools in project documentation, specifications, and to obtain LEED/WELL and other building certification credits.
