Material Selection Matters
Construction professionals specify materials every day; your decisions affect the environment, our communities, and their health and safety. Harnessing the evolving body of knowledge about the impacts of materials on our communities is integral to improving the science and art of architecture and engineering. It is crucial to have transparent, accurate information about building materials in order to select the products that are right for your project.
“Building failures are the most common cause of missed energy targets, durability issues, and health and comfort problems. Making multilayered, high-performance structures and building envelopes function as they should requires a new way of thinking that has not yet become second nature in the industry” John Straube, Ph.D., P.Eng. – Principal, RDH Building Science
