Eco Friendly Hand Drying Strategies June 29th 12pm-1pm EST
Event Description

In this one hour course, the design professional will consider hand drying strategies used in various types of restrooms including schools, restaurants, stadiums, and more. We will assess multiple strategies, including electric hand dryers and the use of paper towels, and compare the life-cycle costs associated with each strategy under different usage scenarios. We conclude with an examination of the environmental and human benefits from the use of high performance hand dryers, including energy use, waste reduction, and acoustics.

Learning Objectives:
1. Evaluate hand drying strategies for typical restroom scenarios.
2. Determine the costs, benefits, and return on investment from the use of various hand drying strategies.
3. Identify the environmental and human health benefits associated with the use of hand dryers.
4. Articulate how hand dryers contribute towards LEED credits in the LEED v4 rating system for Building Design and Construction (BD+C) and Interior Design and Construction (ID+C).
