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

ABC Collaborative Activities

Foundational Activities 

Foundational activities serve to align industry minds to an ABC-focused market. By bringing together industry leaders through events and working groups as well as providing industry guidance and market trends assessments, the Collaborative empowers industry stakeholders with the information, relationships, and support needed to scale ABC nationally, building on regional markets.

Market Mobilization Activities

The ABC Collaborative will mobilize local and regional industry and public sector actors to create hubs of ABC activity grounded in local needs and resources. These hubs will engage local policymakers, business stakeholders, and workforce institutions to create ABC-conducive market conditions that enable transactional ecosystems.

Transactional Activities

Each of these activities is designed to drive adoption of ABC. The Collaborative will coordinate a platform to facilitate and expedite transactional relationships and rapidly increase the rate of ABC activity. In addition, the Collaborative will support supply and demand actors with a series of enabling services. This support will ensure that suppliers and solution providers are able to establish successful business ventures and corporate partnerships and that developers, owners, and operators receive the appropriate ABC packages required to fulfill their real estate project and performance needs.
