Contract and BIFMA to Present 2014 level Roadshow

28 April, 2014

-By Cody Calamaio



Contract magazine and the Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturer's Association (BIFMA) have teamed up to present a national tour to educate design professionals about the "level" sustainability standard and third-party certification program. The 2014 level Roadshow will visit nine cities between May and October 2014.

"BIFMA and the office furniture industry have been at the forefront of sustainability and transparency in product manufacturing, and the level program, in particular, is a powerful tool for interior design professionals who want to specify sustainable products," said Contract Editor in Chief John Czarnecki, Assoc. AIA, Hon. IIDA.  "Contract is eager to help build awareness around level because we believe it’s an important program that helps the design industry as a whole move sustainability goals forward."

Green building expert Paul Shahriari of Greenmind Inc. will deliver the presentations, which will also provide attendees with one hour CEU credit for each session. The tour is co-sponsored by Herman Miller, Knoll, and National Office Furniture.

"We created level to deliver the most open and transparent means of evaluating and communicating the environmental and social impacts of furniture products in the built environment," said Tom Reardon, Executive Director of BIFMA. "And we’re delighted that Contract is helping take level to design professionals across the country."

The 2014 level Roadshow dates are:

  • May 8 – Atlanta, National Office Showroom, 201 17th St. NW, Ste. 150 — 4:00 PM
