1.5 CES/HSW LU
What if one of your clients asked you to build “the world’s healthiest house?”
Michael McCutcheon, Allied Member, presents the results of a unique project where the charge from the owner was to build the “healthiest” home possible, with cost as virtually no object — not just for the future occupants, but also the workers, manufacturers, and even the firemen who would have to enter the house if it caught fire.
