    What It's About

    It wasn’t simply a COVID bump—sustained consumer desire as well as new financial incentives are driving demand for healthier, high performing homes and communities. Still, many builders remain uncertain on how to proceed. Urban infill offers significant opportunity, but these locations can be risky to finance and build. Many fear increased costs when a home is built as a healthy, energy efficient system, but with the right approach, a near equal number of costs can be reduced as can builder liability. This session will focus on the four pillars—financial incentives, sustainable land use, high performance building technique, and occupant health and wellness outcomes—that will allow heathier, high performing homes and communities to become an attainable and profitable reality for your business.

    What You’ll Learn

    • Learn how new design-criteria for projects and financial incentives impact the demand for and growth of healthier, green homes and communities.
    • Discover ways to apply the NGBS Land Development certification process to an urban infill site to maximize the marketing value of the certification and sustainable development value.
    • Uncover how healthier building principles work synergistically to improve occupant comfort, health, satisfaction and improve your bottom line.
    • Find ways to communicate with and educate clients about healthier homes and their benefits.
