Healthcare and Science & Technology spaces and buildings demand specific and unique performance criteria to support the challenges of scientific study needs, material safety and occupant health and safety. Solutions to criteria like vibration control and high air-changes involve additional material which likely results in additional embodied carbon. Join us for a discussion to explore these and other challenges within this sector and building-type, with a goal of identifying opportunities and related action items to move forward with carbon reductions.
