Majority of Home Builders to Adopt Green Building Practices, According to National Study
“Green” builders will soon be in the majority,
according to the preliminary results of a study by the National Association of
Home Builders (NAHB) and McGraw-Hill Construction. By the end of 2007, nearly
two thirds of all home builders say they’ll be involved in green building
to some degree—and green built homes are expected to account for between
$19 and $38 billion in construction, compared to just $7.4 billion today.
Look for the Green Building
Initiative at these upcoming events:
As more mainstream architects, engineers, builders and
others seek guidance and technical advice for building green, credibility is
key—both in terms of the rating systems and programs available, and the
organizations that provide them.
