(IS-2014-76) The State of Green Building: Results from the 2014 Green Home Builders and Remodelers Survey
This report provides the results from the 2014 Green Home Builders and Remodeler Survey. The survey was first conducted in 2006 with NAHB and repeated in 2008, 2012 and 2014. It consisted of 117 Builder and Remodeler Respondents: 52 builders only working on new projects, 38 remodelers, 27 doing both new and remodeling work. It found that while currently at 23%, the green share of new single-family home construction is expected to continue to grow. Number of remodeling firms doing largely green work is expected to double in the next 5 years. Green is becoming more embedded into codes and regulations, driving green growth.
