The U.S. Green Building Council says it will release green building market reports for all 50 states over the course of the summer, beginning with Florida.
In an announcement posted at the USGBC web site, technical policy director Jeremy Sigmon said the reports would cover “green building facts, figures, policy context, stand-out projects and more.”
Citing a McGraw-Hill Construction report, Sigmon said the green building market is doubling in size every three years and was expected to total $100 billion this year. He said more than 1.5 million sq. ft. of space is certified daily under Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) programs. The U.S. now has more than 37,000 residential LEED units.
