NTCA Webinar: Green Construction and the Tile Industry
The Green Construction and the Tile Industry presentation will take a look at green construction and how tile fits into these buildings. The presentation will touch on why the world is going “green”, the effects on the world around us, the future of green construction, and then dive into LEED v4 and Living Building Challenge which are the two Green Rating Systems for which we see the most requests for information. We will also discuss the changes to LEED and what the TCNA, tile manufacturers and tile installation material manufacturers have done to respond to changes in green construction over the past 3 years.
