HDR’s Sustainability Design Practice Represented in Health Product Declaration Collaborative
Congratulations to HDR’s Sustainability Design team members Jean M. Hansen and Michelle Dusseau Diller for representing the company in the Health Product Declaration Collaborative (HPDC).
Jean M. Hansen, FIIDA, LEED Fellow, CID, EDAC, AAHID, GGP, HDR’s sustainable principal, interior design in the San Francisco office, has been elected to HPDC’s 2015-2016 board of directors.
Jean is a founding board member of the HPDC, which has been led by this board since its inception in 2012. The customer-led member organization is committed to the improvement of the building industry’s environmental and health performance. It created, supports and advances the HPD Open Standard, which enables the transparent disclosure of building product content and associated health information.
The composition of the board reflects the growing adoption of the HPD Open Standard, which was marked by the September 2015 release of its first major update: HPD 2.0.
The new board of directors met for the first time last month and elected officers and committee members. Michelle Dusseau Diller, PE, PMP, LEED AP BD+C, ENV SP, GGP, HDR’s sustainable leader, water and resiliency in the Alexandria office, was selected for the Technical Committee following an open call for applicants.
“Having two members of HDR’s Sustainable Design practice in the HPDC reinforces HDR’s industry leadership and commitment to the design of healthy spaces for our clients,” says Colin Rohlfing, LEED AP BD+C, vice president, director of sustainable development. “I know that both Jean and Michelle will positively shape the direction of the material transparency movement for our entire industry in 2016.”
