Flooring Installation systems of today are not the same as a few years ago.  Programs such as LEED v4, Living Building Challenge and Delos WELL Building Standard have challenged both the building product manufacturer and the installer to re-think the entire floor covering installation layering system. The trend away from recycled content and regional manufacturing to product ‘transparency’ (reducing hazardous ingredients and minimizing pollution and waste) requires manufacturers to effectively communicate this data by way of programs such as Health Product Declarations (HPD), Cradle to Cradle (C2C), Manufacturer Inventory (MI), Environmental Product Declarations (EPD) and ANSI A138.1 GreenSquared Certified  and VOC emission (In-house or third-party certified per CA-DPH; Section 01350). As ‘transparency’ becomes the ‘new norm’ for doing business,  it requires all stakeholders to make informed decisions —based both on performance and product transparency.

As a LEED Green Associate and member of USGBC National & Florida Chapter, the International Living Future Institute (ILFI), CSI and CSC, Chris assists the A&D community to ensure that products meet both performance and transparency requirements of a variety of sustainable design programs.  As a member of MAPEI’s Technical Services Department, Cris works closely with training and documentation to ensure our sustainable message is clearly conveyed to our customers.  In his 30+ years of experience in field engineering and training, he has collaborated on projects all around the world in the HVAC, Construction, Industrial sectors and for the past 15 years he has applied this knowledge to the flooring industry.
