    Advancing Sustainability Through Product Performance and Transparency

    The best path to a sustainable building is to know what’s in the materials being used to build it. However, questions remain among manufacturers and buyers about just how to evaluate and compare the environmental profiles of similar building products and materials. For example, what is the significance of a product bearing an eco-label? What are the differences between various types of product eco-certifications? What mechanisms exist to support comparisons between similar products? And, what steps can manufacturers take to bring environmentally preferable products to market as efficiently and as cost effectively as possible?

    This course will discuss each of these tools and how they can collectively provide information regarding the environmental impact of products, as well as their environmental performance, and offer an objective means of comparing similar products. Ultimately, these mechanisms enable buyers to make more informed decisions about the products they purchase, spurring further advances in product sustainability. Enroll

    Transparency: The Role of Environmental Product Declarations

    Recently, building product transparency has started to gain traction in North America; changes in consumer expectations, building certification systems, and international laws and standards have finally begun to converge in standardized corporate reporting about any number of environmental, social, and health impacts. International tools have been developed to easily communicate some of this information through what is known as an environmental product declaration (EPD), which can be thought of as a nutrition label for building products. This course will provide an understanding of the global demand for environmental product declarations in the building industry, how they are developed, and their limitations. Enroll

    This educational unit has been designed to educate architects, designers, contractors and installers about Specifying Luxury Kitchens for Aging in Place. The need for kitchens with Universal Design, which are accessible for the greatest number of users no matter what their ability or disability, is spelled out. The percentage of the population over 65 is fast growing, and the vast majority of people want to stay in their homes as they age, but most homes are woefully inadequate to be safe and accessible for this population. This course describes general design considerations to make a luxury kitchen suitable for all users, and indicates which features in cooking and refrigeration appliances are safe and accessible.

    Kitchen Planning for the Generations

    Appliance technologies and the kitchen’s place in the home have changed drastically over the past twenty years. Modern kitchens have grown in size and are now the heart of the home for entertaining, dining and working. Many times there are several people cooking at the same time. Given these scenarios, it is important to consider the entire range of users, from young children to the elderly.

    In this course we will discuss how kitchen planning can serve the needs of three generations, from Generation Y (aka Millennials) to the Baby Boomers. We will focus on how these groups differ in their vision of how a kitchen should function, style preferences, appliance requests, acceptance or integration of technology into the space, and universal design.

    Specifying Luxury Kitchens in Small Spaces — For Apartments, Condos, Vacation Homes and More

    This educational unit has been designed to educate architects, designers, contractors and installers about Specifying Luxury Kitchens in Small Spaces. While primary homes are big and getting bigger, there are many reasons why an architect or designer is likely to encounter smaller kitchens. The cases range from city apartments to vacation condos to pied-a-terres and even yachts.

    While kitchens in these residences may be relatively small, they can still have the upscale finishes, quality appliances and all the bells and whistles the luxury clientele expects. This course describes general design considerations for specifying smaller kitchens, discusses refrigeration and cooking appliances that make most sense in a smaller space, and then suggests how to spread kitchen functions beyond the kitchen and into the rest of the home.
