Residential Construction Industry Research Agenda

April 24th, 2015 - Posted by Steve Baden under RESNET News

Are you passionate about residential construction? Do you design or build homes or apartments and have ideas on how to improve construction methods or develop innovative solutions? Home Innovation Research Labs, a subsidiary of the National Association of Home Builders, wants to hear about the challenges you and your colleagues are facing in your pursuit of building better homes today. If you have ideas on how to solve those challenges, we want to hear about those as well. Your input will help inform a Residential Construction Industry Research Agenda, dubbed #Home2020, that will serve as a guide for directing federal and industry funding for the next 5+ years to develop the resources, methods, and tools needed to produce high-performance residential wood buildings for today’s market.

Make sure your voice is heard and issues relevant to you and your constituents are represented. Visit today and share the top three challenges you are facing or ideas that you think could make home building better. Construction of new or remodeling of one- and two-family dwellings and multifamily buildings in all regions of the United States are of interest. The needs assessment is comprehensive – from performance of building materials and systems, to design and construction processes, to whole-building performance metrics. (The “About” section of the portal provides more detail.) Visit and come back as often as you want from now through May 31, 2015.
