  • A Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), and its market-facing communication document, the Environmental Product Declaration (EPD), can help building products manufacturers increase revenues, strengthen brands, gain operational efficiencies, and mitigate risk. This presentation will make the business case for developing an EPD, explain LEEDv4 MR credits, and demystify complexities of the underlying LCA. Attendees will learn, task by task, how an LCA is conducted and what resources would be necessary to bring an EPD to fruition. Options will be presented for developing EPDs cooperatively at the industry-wide level using consulting services, or independently at the manufacturer-specific level using software. A discussion to roadmap the path forward will follow the presentation.

  • Commercial aluminum wall, window and roof systems have undergone improvements in recent decades, making them technologically sufficient to meet contemporary standards of durability. In addition to being familiar with the systems' thermal and other ecological benefits, specifiers need to understand paint chemistry and the difference between powder and liquid coating application methods. It is also important to understand third party specifications published by AAMA, which cover architectural coatings.
