Healthy Building Materials will explore the relationship between our built environment and our health. As we move to more energy efficient buildings with effective air sealing and appropriate mechanical ventilation, a growing body of evidence is helping us understand a broader range of appliances, systems, materials and finishes that can be harmful to human health. By adopting a proactive approach to healthy materials, builders and home renovators can guard their own health and deliver beautiful, healthy buildings that have lasting value.

The course will consist of a selected list of pre-course readings, videos, and relevant websites. Classroom time will include a discussion of the key concepts and information in the readings, and an exercise to identify materials substitutions in real-life projects.
