The BrightBuilt Barn 10-year Anniversary: Celebrating the Birth of Affordable, Off-Site-Built Net Zero and the Industry Change It Spawned

In 2006, a group of industry leaders collaborated on an ideal for the future of homebuilding in the Northeast, focusing on affordability, sustainability, replicability, and beauty. Their project, the BrightBuilt Barn, won the LEED Innovative Project Award in 2008 and has been net-positive ever since. The concept's success has been proven by the emergence of the off-site constructed, high-performance home industry. Three of the primary team members have gone on to form successful businesses in the space: BrightBuilt Home, Unity, and GO Home. The original team reconvenes to discuss what made it so successful, how we can continue to spark innovation, and what challenges remain.
