Contractors play a key role in the materials that are installed in building projects. This discussion brings together contractors to discuss how new client requirements for healthier, lower impact materials are changing the way they procure products. We will address the hard questions including cost, timelines, the risk around using new types of materials, and the greater imperatives that make better materials worth the extra work.
