2017 Materials Matter – Just Do It: Strategies for Projects

Session 4 of the Materials Matter series, Just Do It: Strategies for Projects, presents frameworks for integrating knowledge of environmental and human health impacts from material substances into projects. It explores strategies at play when materials decisions are driven by clients, rating-systems, firms, and even individual initiative. Case studies share lessons learned from on the ground experiences, and speakers candidly discuss the different perspectives and motivators of project team members.

Materials Matter is co-presented by Puget Sound Chapter CSI.

Individual session registration is now available!

SESSION LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  • Participants will be able to summarize project case studies which used healthy, sustainable materials and describe the challenges and opportunities of client-driven and architect-driven approaches.
  • Participants will be able to explain the different perspectives, pressures, and responsibilities of project team members related to materials transparency.
  • Participants will be able to construct strategies for applying a materials matter approach to projects by understanding motivators for different project team members.
  • Participants will be able to identify strategies at the individual level to constructively promote awareness of healthy materials selection among product representatives and colleagues.
