Session Description

Perkins+Will Minneapolis and Mayo Clinic have been developing continual improvement strategies for healthy materials use at Mayo Clinic healthcare facilities. This presentation will review 5-10 chemicals of concern that are commonly found in building products, why they should be avoided, and why healthy materials selection is especially important in healthcare settings. Presenters will share methods for analyzing healthy materials and resources that are readily available online and will walk attendees through the Mayo Clinic Environmental Services Training Facility project, which contains three mock patient rooms and one mock exam room. They will share test results, lessons learned, and potential impacts on Mayo Clinic materials standards going forward.
