Webinar: “Healthy, Wealthy, and Wise: why prioritising healthier buildings and the indoor environment is essential for the purpose-oriented building professional, and for people, planet, & profits”
The time is now. The global pandemic has focused our minds on the critical issue of healthy indoor air. The first step for building professionals must be to move ‘beyond code’ and to focus on the design, construction and management of the built environment so that healthier indoor air is optimised. In this webinar, Dr John McKeon will be joined by Roxane Spears ,Vice President Sustainability North America, Tarkett, Dhruv Raina Product Stewardship Director, Tarkett , to explore the impact building materials and indoor air quality (IAQ) can have on human health.
The discussion will focus on key insights such as how we can enhance the built and indoor environment to prioritize the wellbeing of the occupants. How can building professionals prioritize health and wellness, as well as building design and construction?
Good design is healthy design. The webinar will review how to navigate industry resources, standards, and certifications to achieve maximum impact on healthy spaces and will explore how the ASL Academy can help achieve these goals.
