RE: affirmative procurement products -- building materials



Diana,

You could try contacting Joel Ann Todd, who's worked with the Architects
trade association on LCA and green building materials. Since a good LCA
will take into account the durability of alternative materials, I assume
she has considered long term performance of some of the things you're
looking at. 

Joel Ann is with The Scientific Consulting Group 301 670 4990
Email is science@cpcug.org

Good luck
Melissa
