For the upcoming Fourth Annual MED|Ed Facilities Conference and Expo in Boston, the USGBC Massachusetts Chapter will be sponsoring a number of sessions during the event's two days. One session is W28: From Research to Specifications to Healthier Environments, instructed by Robin Dodson of Silent Spring Institute, Heather Henriksen of Harvard University, Greta Eckhardt of Payette Associates, and Lisa Goodwin Robbins of Kalin Associates.
Scientific studies are providing ever-increasing evidence demonstrating the effects indoor environmental quality can have on occupant health. We ask: How can results of scientific research on materials be most effectively translated into building design and requirements for construction? We will explore a process that uses facility standards and construction specifications as tools for translating scientific data into documents that can be enforced during building construction and share a case study in higher education.
Wednesday, April 5th, 10:00am
