Mindful Materials Boston

February 27 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am

If we change the way products are made and the way buildings are designed, we can positively impact the health of the population and the planet.

With this in mind, the material health of building products is becoming a hot topic among architects and designers. We need to provide information and education to help the A&D community effectively make difficult product decisions. The WANT TO is there but the HOW TO has not been mapped out within a project supply chain.

Please come to learn about how the Mindful Materials program is creating a market movement that will simplify the material health/product transparency specifications for the A&D community.

This event will show how the Mindful Materials program can create a community between architects, designers, contractors, manufacturers, and owners so that we can all design with intent for the health of our people and our planet. Learn how manufacturers have invested in programs like C2C, HPD, EPD and Declare so that design professionals know more about the materials that we specify.

Presenters:

  • Tim Conway, Vice President Sustainability Shaw Industries

  • Annie Bevan, Global Head of Sustainability at Superior Essex Communications

  • Brent Tenga, Building Technology Director at Kingspan Insulated Panels

  • Amy Vigneux, Director – Sustainable Building Solutions at ASSA ABLOY

  • Anita Snader, Environmental Sustainability Manager at Armstrong World Industries
