Green Building has become the construction trend of the decade. Recent research predicts that 50% of non-residential buildings in the U.S. will become green buildings in the next four years pumping $554 billion into the American economy and creating 8 million jobs. Even 75% of homeowners surveyed said that they are more likely to buy a green home over traditional build. This unprecedented growth is being driven by public opinion and corporate demand and represents the biggest opportunity for built environment professionals in history.
