Selecting Materials for Outdoor Applications: Choice of Materials—and Product Suppliers—Matters on Many Levels

Description: Architects and designers have many options for specifying site furniture products for their projects, and selecting materials and finishes is an integral part of this process; yet, making material selections has become more and more complex. The course examines conditions and constraints of outdoor environments; evaluates materials commonly used in outdoor applications; discusses using green building standards and rating systems, and the role of suppliers as resources for material selection; and provides examples of products that adhere to a higher environmental standard.
