At trade shows we ask customers and passersby what their biggest challenges are in green building.
"Wading through the greenwash"
"Getting customers to buy into it."
Those are a few of the common answers. But one answer that's all too common is "Convincing my building inspector that what I want to do is better than what (s)he wants me to do."
When we talk to building inspectors about their biggest challenges in green building, they tell us that it's the magnitude of new stuff they need to learn in order to keep up with it.
