      To be sure, we are in an age of acceleration as disruptions impact virtually all major industries. Think retail, taxi service, automobiles, personal communication, music, photography, media, and the list goes on. Housing in the U.S. has been able to sit on the sidelines with a first cost dominated business model and uniquely fragmented industry … but not for much longer. There are five crises ratcheting up builder pain to a threshold that will finally break through the industry’s resistance to change. By simply connecting the dots, we can define the future of housing with certainty. One with four major pain-relieving disruptions looming ahead. Green, high-performance homes will not be enough to survive … not nearly enough. Will you be ready? Those that are, will lead the industry in profit and resilience.

      Built Green is the holistic green home certification program of the Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties. In addition to certifying green homes, remodels, apartments, and communities, we cultivate a member network of companies and individuals involved in the green building industry, and research and market the human and environmental benefits of green building.
