Building Sustainably: Wood’s Role in Healthy Forests and Healthy Buildings

February 28, 2023 @ 11:30 am - 2:00 pm EST

  • In Person
The Kendeda Building for Innovative Sustainable Design interior

This presentation will discuss three topics: forestry and the impact of wood use on forest health, the relevance of wood to green building rating systems, and biophilic design strategies for healthy buildings. It will answer questions such as: Where do our trees and forests grow? How have forests changed over time? What is the relationship between people and forests—now and in the past? How does wood contribute to biophilic design principles? What is the purpose of green building rating systems and how do they vary? How can wood products be used in construction to gain points and credits within a number of green building rating systems?

Attendees can earn 2.0 AIA/CES HSW LUs, 2.0 PDH credits or 0.2 ICC credits
