What Is ABC
Advanced building construction 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. ABC solutions include technologies, construction and manufacturing techniques, and new business models.
Who We Are
The ABC Collaborative brings together a diverse network of incumbent and emergent buildings sector actors—across manufacturing, construction, real estate, development, and related areas. We work to accelerate the uptake, scaling, and mainstream adoption of ABC while supporting—and leveraging—modernization of the US construction industry.
Our 2050 Goal
We are on a mission to decarbonize the US building stock while improving affordability, resilience, and equity. To achieve this, we believe we must work diligently toward the following objectives for 2030:
- Ramp up existing building decarbonization activity to a volume of 3M+ net-zero-carbon retrofits per year
- Ensure virtually all new construction is net-zero carbon
- Scale ABC activity to at least 25% of the construction market
- Facilitate innovative business models, workforce training, and public sector support to help unlock market transformation
