There are many forces that collided and forever changed the construction landscape in the recent global economic downturn. Two of them were the collapse of the sub-prime mortgage industry, which left thousands of construction professionals with huge overhead and no work; and the heightened market awareness, demand, and increase in energy conservation within our codes.  Getting construction done from design to certificate of occupancy has now become a major challenge comprised of integrated design team members, rules, regulations, lending and appraising, and any third or fourth or fifth party Green Building rating requirements. 

Given these building challenges, the future of human preservation lies within the built environment and there is a deeply satisfying reward to building a comfortable, healthy, hyper-energy efficient building that can produce more energy than it uses.
