Tarkett Hosts Second Annual Healthy Building Summit
Solon, OH, December 15, 2023-Tarkett recently hosted its second annual Healthy Building Summit. The collaborative two-day workshop, held at Tarkett’s Chicago showroom, brought together dozens of professionals from a variety of disciplines, including architects, school administrators and facility managers.
Among the key takeaways from this year’s event was the role of facility managers and their need for greater support from the architectural and design industry. Facility maintenance departments have an enormous impact on the health of a school building yet are often underfunded and left out of initial design and construction decisions.
Flooring contributes to several areas that can impact people’s overall well-being within a space, including indoor air quality, acoustics, maintenance procedures and design aesthetic.
