Modern living dictates that we spend 80-90% of our lives indoors, be it at work, home, or at play.

Designers, architects, builders, and contractors are responsible for the construction of these spaces. Therefore, it is the responsibility of these specialists to create environmentally sustainable spaces, that can also positively impact the occupants’ health and wellbeing.

Materials shared in the basic tier are designed to be easily understandable and applicable for industry partners who might have minimal experience within the interior design industry.
