About Spec Matters

Join us on our journey to healthier, safer, and more sustainable environments.

We are a diverse team of young professionals who are eager to learn and are passionate about sustainability and healthy building initiatives. We represent many sectors of the building industry.  We are architects, interior designers, construction administrators, and designers.  Together with our peers in marketing and business, we’ve come together in efforts to help educate the next generation of leaders who will shape the built environment and our communities.

 

We are built on these core pillars:

ACCESSIBILITY: We condense complex, scientific research to small, absorbable bits to make it more accessible and easy to understand. 
AWARENESS: We raise awareness of the health and environmental challenges that our industry is facing. 
ACTION: We suggest simple ways in which to take action and make progress towards healthier, more sustainable specifications. 
EMPOWERMENT:  We believe each of you play a part in this movement towards healthier buildings.  Take the first step and get informed.
