Tuesday, February 27 | 10:15 - 11:15 AM
LVCC - West 204
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.
