Mary Cordaro, president and founder of Mary Cordaro Inc, is a healthy building and indoor environmental consultant, and a Certified Bau-Biologist. The German field of Bau-Biologie is the study of how the built environment affects both human and planetary health . Since 1989, Mary has been helping clients concerned about or sensitive to building and interior materials and systems. She troubleshoots and solves contaminant problems in existing homes.
She also specifies the healthiest (“beyond green”) building, remodeling and interior products and materials for projects of all sizes, from simple room improvements to brand new construction. Her collaborative approach is unique, synthesizing the fields of German Bau-Biologie and American Building Science. Mary works with and often directs a group of world class, highly specialized experts from the U.S., Germany and Switzerland, who consult on all aspects of new construction, remodeling, and energy efficiency, as well as testing and remediating existing buildings for mold, chemicals, EMFs and many other toxins. Many of Mary’s clients are new or prospective parents who want their children to start out in a healthy environment.
