Perkins+Will’s Healthy Materials Group and Science Fellow Michael Dedeo have released new research in response to the need for architects and interior designers to develop a better understanding of flame retardants and their impact on health. The white paper, “Healthy Environments: Strategies for Avoiding Flame Retardants in the Built Environment,” identifies opportunities to design healthier buildings without compromising fire safety or code compliance.  Lake|Flato is looking forward to using this helpful guide in our work.
