High Performance Building as a Business Strategy

$79.00

One of the biggest high performance building hurdles to overcome is the perception that it costs too much and that the added benefits do not justify the costs. Too often builders and remodelers fall victim to the same perception and actually reinforce it by trying to defend the cost rather than emphasize the value that they have created for their buyer. Return on investment (ROI) and available incentives work to justify the cost and should be part of the discussion with customers, but only a part. It is also important to shift the conversation to the recognition of created value. This module reviews how to do just that. It is also part of the High Performance Building for Building Professionals course.
