Advanced Building Construction Collaborative

The buildings sector faces a confluence of critical challenges: catastrophic climate change is on the horizon (in part driven by buildings-related emissions), construction industry productivity has declined in the last 50 years, and a shortage of attainable housing is burdening families and the economy. Advanced building construction (ABC) offers a powerful solution.


Advanced building construction (ABC) refers to innovative retrofit and new construction solutions that combine energy-efficient building decarbonization and streamlined industrialized construction. In addition to energy and carbon reductions, ABC offers superior comfort, resilience, fast deployment, and other potential co-benefits. The ABC Collaborative brings together a range of incumbent and emergent buildings sector actors to accelerate the uptake, scaling, and mainstream adoption of ABC while supporting—and leveraging—modernization of the US construction industry.

“Not only does the U.S. need to invest in research and development for modular in order to compete on a global scale, it also needs to invest in order to sustain innovation for future cities and to maintain the economy on a broader scale.”
