Green Building is Better Building, and Better Building is More Expensive.
Learning curve certification and better construction details may come at a premium, but the cost will flatten out. The costs of not building green however, will keep going up.
When I teach about green building, someone in the audience always asks the inevitable question: "How much does it cost?" After answering this question several gazillion times, I've realized that it boils down to three queries:
1. What does a green rating cost?
2. What's the learning curve?
