Sustainable Materials in Restrooms, Locker Rooms and Other Applications

Sustainable Materials in Restrooms, Locker Rooms and Other Applications - Update

to take this course

Through a review of partition materials, this course will first introduce the varied options available for restrooms, locker rooms and other applications. We will then take a closer look at HDPE, it’s physical attributes, composition, design options and sustainable contributions to the design and construction of any project including the incorporation of recycled content, indoor air quality and life cycle assessment. To provide a working understanding and larger context, this course will define and illustrate responsible manufacturing as an important part of any product’s life cycle assessment. Learn how making good decisions through specification can contribute to both the improvement of our environment and your client’s next project in this one hour online course. We will conclude this course with a brief 10 question quiz for assessment.

Learning Objectives:
