Product Disclosure: What's in a Building?

Know the requirements of the Product Disclosure process.

Since the late 1990s there has been an increasing awareness among building owners for the use of sustainable, energy saving and safe products for use in their buildings. Recent studies have indicated that most building owners and facility personnel place sustainable and safe materials as their number one buying influencer. This has had a major impact on what building materials and application methods are used in 21st Century buildings. The requirement for safer-materials is further enhanced by the influence that LEED now has on building design and construction. LEED has introduced Product Disclosure requirements for points. The LEED requirements were initially regulated to specialized project personnel - typically safety and environmental specialists. As professionals in all phases of the building industry it has become apparent that this program is becoming more standardized and required on most projects. Therefore professionals in all phases of the building industry should have a working knowledge of these requirements. This material focuses on the requirements of the Product Disclosure process. It provides the requirements for the Environmental Product Declaration and the Health Product Declaration. It reviews the LEED Building Product Disclosure and Optimization Program and defines how to gain points (LEED Credits) within this program. The case study provides analysis of what to review in Material Data Sheets and how this process impacts every phase of the project.
