1. Understand and evaluate a manufacturer’s stewardship of natural resources (energy, water, atmosphere) for solid surface “sheet” and “shape” supply chain, manufacturing, distribution, fabrication, and in situ performance characteristics, including any end-of-life-cycle considerations.
2. Understand the various environmental review and rating criteria that are applicable when design professionals consider various surfacing materials options for both horizontal and vertical interior installations.
3. Understand the environmental impact of fabrication materials and methods that transform “Sheet” and “Shape” material into finished products for both commercial and non-commercial applications. Understand how the design flexibility of solid surface contributes to the well-being of the end user.
4. Understand the low-impact techniques and materials utilized for the care, maintenance, repair, and restoration of installed solid surface products including categories of products, their suitability for use in interior spaces, and beneficial impact on delivering life-cycle value including end-of-life disposal.
