Green Building Survey Shows 20% Growth in 2005, 30% in 2006

[New York] Preliminary results of a McGraw-Hill Construction/National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) survey indicated that there was a 20% increase in 2005 among those in the home building community who are focusing their attention on green, environmentally- responsible building, which is expected to increase by another 30% this year. After several years of slow but steady growth across the country, the green home building movement — which applies innovative and environmentally sensitive construction techniques and products to reduce energy and water consumption and improve residential comfort and safety — is rapidly moving into the mainstream. By 2010, residential green building is expected to grow to $19 – $38 billion.
