Light-Manipulating Materials: Create Build, Inspire – Presented by Sensitile Systems
Preview: Learn how to compare and contrast light-filtering, light-emitting, and interactive light-manipulating materials in terms of how they capture, bend, and redirect light from ambient sources with no power needed or with energy-efficient LED
- explain how materials maximize light while reducing glare, extend light deeper into and distribute it within a space, provide privacy without seclusion, and operate as energy-efficient primary or accent lighting
- discuss the performance attributes of resin, glass, and terrazzo substrates and their available
- design options including sizes, surface finishes, lighting solutions, color, shapes, and graphics
- describe application examples and mounting options for secure installation and integrate designer/architect feedback regarding how these materials enrich the experience of a space through various case studies.

The Creation of Experiential Building Environments Using Light-Manipulating Materials – Presented by Sensitile Systems
Individuals are deeply connected to their surroundings. When environments have the ability to inspire and encompass creativity, collaboration, and innovation, this connection can in turn foster health, well-being, and a sense of contentment. By utilizing light-manipulating materials in buildings, experiential spaces will not only promote occupant well-being but they will also help projects achieve LEED and WELL credits and environmental stewardship.
- Analyze the properties and role of light-manipulating materials in buildings, in terms of the human experience with light and its relationship to the built environment.
- Discuss how light-manipulating materials help architects create innovative, experiential environments.
- Examine how light-manipulating materials can help projects achieve LEED and WELL credits and promote occupant well-being and environmental stewardship.
- Describe best practices for selecting and installing light-manipulating materials for different applications.
- Explore case studies of how light-manipulating materials enrich the experience of a space.

WELL Minded – Presented by OFS
The Global Wellness Industry + The WELL Building Standard™
Course description: This CEU is designed to illustrate the importance of the global
wellness industry at large, identify the external factors driving wellness in design, and
highlight the importance of the WELL Building Standard™.
In this course, we will provide an overview of the wellness economy, review the
generational demand for wellness in the workplace, and explain what drives consumer
buying behaviors. We will then take a look at how the 2020 pandemic and demands for
social responsibility has catapulted the need for wellness in all aspects of our lives.
The WELL Building Standard™ v2 has been adapted from v1 to meet the needs of our
current times, and we will take a look at some of the major principles and concept
changes between v1 and v2. As a conclusion, we will highlight a few projects and show
how they have been positively impacted by WELL Certification.

Working WELL – Presented by OFS
OFS and the WELL Building Standard™
Third party certified through collaboration with Green Business Certification Inc.– the certification body for the LEED Green Building Rating System
Course description: The presentation outlines the criteria supporting WELL certification
in which over 100 performance metrics, design strategies, and policies work harmoniously
It is often a minor tweak, a slight adjustment, or just a more direct focus on a specific
concept of WELL that can make a tremendous difference to employee health and
wellbeing. Many of the recommended preventive strategies that respond to the WELL
Building Standard’s performance metrics are intuitive and offer significant health benefits.
Offering this deep dive reinforces the OFS commitment to sharing the most current and
relevant education with our partners. It supports our continued investment in not just
creating products that support more human-centered environments, but also educating on
the innovative trends that support that commitment.
All of our partners are looking for ways to add additional value to their clients or employees,
and for those that have not been exposed to how the preventive medical intentions within
the program support improved health and wellbeing within the built environment, the
presentation will be extremely insightful and further their ability to enhance their design
solutions while communicating more effective operational behaviors.
