Avoiding Mold in Federal Buildings

Chief Architect - U.S. General Services Administration

As part of the Design Excellence program of the Chief Architect of the Public Buildings Service of the U.S. General Services Administration, we were asked to create a series of symposium presentations for Architects, engineers, construction managers and property managers. The goal for these presentations was to help managers understand the risk factors for mold in buildings and to provide suggestions for design, construction and operation which can limit those risks. This brief extract from one of those one-hour symposia presentations provides a sample of Lew Harriman’s presentation style.
