Presented by Tim Petersen, LEED AP and Steve Farley, CSI, CDT, LEED, GA

This presentation will review the challenges faced as the wood door industry evolves from traditional product construction to meet the demand for greener and more environmentally friendly products. In today's rapidly evolving market, understanding and complying with green construction requirements is critical for all serving the commercial construction industry. Once voluntary, green building features are now being adopted into building code, changing the landscape of project compliance and potential liabilities.

While focusing on wood doors, this program will also cover overall trends affecting environmental commercial construction.
