Michael Dickens

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Michael has dedicated his career to bringing innovation to the building industry, and in 1991, he co-founded IBACOS to reinvent the way homes are designed, built, and lived in. IBACOS was an outgrowth from General Electric (GE), where Michael directed its Living Environments program, a collaboration of leading manufacturers focused on new systems approaches to delivering American homes. Under Michael’s leadership, IBACOS played a pioneering role in helping the U.S. Department of Energy create its successful Building America program, which has reduced America’s energy costs and improved its environmental health by close to $1 billion over the past 15 years. He also founded BuildIQ®, IBACOS’ sister company focused on online knowledge, training and tools in Best Practices in Homebuilding®. BuildIQ products are now offered within IBACOS’ PERFORM quality assurance system for leading U.S. production homebuilders. In addition to his current role at IBACOS, he serves as Vice Chair for the Housing Innovation Alliance—an entity founded by IBACOS to foster innovation among the best and brightest across the U.S. housing value chain—from dirt to dweller.
