Construction

A Home Building Revolution – The Harmless Home YouTube (16:43) It’s now possible to build structures that are carbon negative, fireproof, soundproof, toxin free, earthquake, mold and pest resistant. This video features the first home of its kind in the world.

Zero Coalition Oregon  We’re excited to see interest in decarbonizing the built environment increasing year-over-year. The building sector presents a huge opportunity for the state to meet its climate action goals and create healthy, fossil-fuel-free buildings that are accessible to all Oregonians. There will likely be more than 700,000 new homes and apartments and more than 800 million new square feet of commercial building space built in Oregon between now and 2050. Our work together now will lead to big changes for our state.
