The AIA Columbus Academy of Architecture for Health will be joined by the AIA Columbus Committee on the Environment for a presentation on sustainable materials in healthcare architecture.
The definition of sustainability has broadened beyond traditional operational measures (energy, water, recycled content) to include material health and how spaces impact people. This movement in sustainability has been driven by leaders in the Healthcare Industry. People spend 90% of time indoors – so the places where we work and live impacts our wellbeing. The ingredients that go into products that go into our spaces are now being screened and assessed by the organization Health Care Without Harm to bring awareness to protect human impacts. This session covers market insights and trends driving the focus on human health and wellbeing. Get grounded in the Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Products Program and the Healthcare Without Harm Green Healthy Approved Program.
This event will start with a 15-minute AAH Committee business meeting followed by a 45-minute discussion on sustainable materials.
