The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) has launched a new sustainable design workshop focused exclusively on interior design. The new REGREEN Implementation Workshop addresses the industry-specific challenges interior designers face when renovating a client space.
Building on foundational principles from the REGREEN Residential Remodeling Guidelines, the all-day course employs faculty-led instruction and team charrettes to prepare designers to identify, evaluate, and implement strategies to green their projects. The new workshop focuses on inside-the-building envelope issues such as spatial relationships and adjacencies, furniture, finish and equipment selection, client education, and source control for healthy indoor air quality.
The first workshop will be offered during High Point Market in High Point, NC, on October 17, 2012. The next workshop will held in conjunction with Greenbuild in San Francisco, CA, on November 12, 2012.
