    Paint Matters TM
    1 IDCEC hour | 3 - 4 p.m.

    Paint is viewed as simply aesthetic, yet it can lead to either a very positive first impression or a lasting negative one. Long after a project is completed the performance of the paint system speaks to the quality of a building and the care put into it by the owner and designer. Paint is also the first line of defense against the elements. When paint performance does not live up to expectations it not only results in tragic and costly consequences to the project. It also impacts the reputation of everyone associated with it.

    Ethonomics: The Formula for Workplace Happiness
    1 IDCEC hour (HSW) | 5:15 - 6:15 p.m.

    The new emphasis on healthy and sustainable communities, buildings, workspaces, and products represents a significant shift and a new consciousness that encompasses the broadest definitions of sustainability and permeates many aspects of our lives. This course expands its view of sustainability to include social and economic sustainability, with particular focus on inclusion of human health and wellness in the sustainability dialogue. We will explore the idea that well-designed space, in all its forms - at the scale of urban planning, of building architecture, and of the technology-enabled workplace - can become a catalyst for wellness. In a rich media experience, attendees will discover the five key ingredients that contribute to workplace happiness.
