Healthy Materials: Up-Level Your Interiors & Passive House Projects

03 29 23  PHA Live Special Event web

Michelle Jacobson (NCIDQ, ASID, LEED AP ID+C, WELL AP, LFA, CHMA) and Maria Lomanto (Allied ASID, WELL AP, LFA, CHMA) of DesignGLXY LLC dive into the process of how to elevate your projects and your IAQ by including healthy materials throughout the design, build and furnishing process.

Certified Healthy Material Advocates and Interior Designers, Maria and Michelle use Michael Ingui’s 10 steps to Designing a Passive House as a springboard, and walk us through the parallel considerations for healthy materials. They ask, “Why stop at the healthy Passive House envelope which keeps many unwanted things outside, when you can insert a “love letter” of healthy design within?” They cover the basic steps to sourcing healthy materials and how your specifications can provide a valuable amenity to offer your client.
