The Health Product Declaration (HPD): An Ingredient List for the Built Environment
AIA course number: GCE00G | 1 AIA HSW CE Hour
GBCI ID: 920001080 | 1 GBCI CE Hour
AIA Provider: GreenCE
Presenter: Tara Blank (From Oregon)
The average American spends the vast majority of their time indoors. However, most people are not unaware of the numerous chemicals and materials they are exposed to on a daily basis, nor do they understand the hazards associated with these substances. As such, the need for a standardized way of reporting the health impacts of building materials is desperately needed. In this one-hour course, the design professional will become familiar with the Health Product Declaration TM (HPD), a material ingredient reporting standard developed under the guidance of the HPD Collaborative TM. We will explore how HPDs contribute to the creation of healthier buildings, how to read and interpret an HPD, and how the HPD can contribute to points in LEED v4.
· Define the objective of the HPD
· Discuss why the HPD is important for human health, and how it can contribute to healthier
· Explain how products with an HPD can contribute to points in LEED v4
· Recognize the HPD format, and understand what constitutes a “compliant” HPD
· Interpret the information presented in an HPD and appreciate how HPD can be used by design
2:50 - 3:50 PM (2:50 - 3:40)

Understanding Polished Densified Concrete utilizing the RetroPlate System of polished concrete.
1. Densified Polished Concrete
2. Identify the challenges, disadvantages of using floor coatings and membranes as opposed to
chemical densifiers. Identify the advantages of using chemical densifiers over floor coatings
3. Learn how the process of concrete densification eliminates the need for additional applications,
and can enhance the overall performance of concrete for the life of the floors, when using the
right chemical densifier product.
4. Identify the added benefits that polishing can add to densified concrete and the low life cycle cost
factor when compared to other types of flooring materials and coverings such as tile, terrazzo.
