New Yorkers are used to the noise of a construction crew in full swing. While those sounds remain the same, industry demands and requirements of today’s building products are changing rapidly, as the request for healthy buildings and building products that entail co-benefits is ever increasing. As requirements change, there is a clear need to improve the alignment between building product research and industry demand. To help close this gap, this session will present the findings of a recent Urban Green Council and NYSERDA study and offer a panel discussion on current trends within building products and, more specifically, the type of building products that will be required in the future.
