A Great Course . . . Would Recommend

July 31, 2018

This is a great course [Deep Material Vetting for USGBC] for anyone looking for a primer on how to go about reviewing and selecting products based on their material ingredients. The research steps are very thorough and provide practical tips on how to manage the potentially overwhelming amount of information on a given product. The presenters also provided useful lessons learned to help the audience understand how to avoid common pitfalls, particularly with regard to project team management of product research/compliance. One particular resource I found very beneficial was the comparison table showing the differences between MSDS, SDS, C2C, HPDs, and Declare; this was the first time I’ve seen a simplified presentation of all of those different tools. I would recommend anyone involved in the building design community.
