Turning the Tide: Addressing Water-Related Affordability & Development Challenges

Wednesday, February 1 | 3:00 - 4:00 PM
LVCC - W225

What It’s About

Water continues to be a critical issue facing builders and developers throughout the country. Water is becoming more scarce particularly throughout the western U.S., while increasing rainfall (and flooding) is prevalent in the south and the east, damaging homes and overwhelming antiquated and under-maintained stormwater infrastructure. The impact—diminished water quality, increased construction costs, a slower pace of building and reduced home affordability. This session will address how the home building industry can respond to these challenges through innovation, community design strategy and advocacy to meet the demand for safe, affordable homes and communities.

What You’ll Learn

  • Examine how climate change and related water issues across the U.S. impact home building and community growth.
  • Learn how innovations in home design, landscape architecture, community planning and infrastructure design are responding to the growing challenge.
  • See how others are successfully advocating for policies and resources to meet the increasing demand for healthy, affordable and resilient homes and communities
  • Discover how climate change related innovations create value for buyers and drive sales.
