Ever since the lowest points of the great recession, the building and housing market has begun to bounce back in many areas of the United States. This can be evidenced by a revitalized and competitive real estate climate, as well as new construction of homes on apartments where demand is the highest. With this new constructions, builders are beginning to utilize products that engineers and scientists have developed that reduce the overall carbon footprint of these structures.
Many of these products look and function much like their predecessors, but are stronger, more durable, and have certain elements that allow them to be efficient for both the builder and eventual property owner. For example, a composite flooring could reduce an electric bill due to its low heat conductivity, or a room can be designed where natural light is made a prominent feature, lessening the need for energy-draining fixtures.
The “Leading Edge” series is happy to announce that they will be featuring programming that explores some of the ways that homes are becoming more sustainable, and the builders and manufacturers that are making it possible. These segments will include manufacturers and experts who can talk about the building industry in the US. By making housing more efficient, the construction industry continues to be a major player in the green movement.
