Sustainability in Construction with Matt Daigle: RISE
Just in time for Earth Day, Tom and Paul were joined by Matt Daigle on this week’s episode of “The Building Code.” Matt founded RISE, a company inspired by his sustainable and environmental family values after the birth of his daughter.
As a homeowner, there are many decisions you need to make while you are building or remodeling a home. In a world of many unreliable sources, RISE aims to provide access to inspiration for homeowners interested in sustainability, trustworthy tips & tricks and even rebate opportunities.
The guys chatted industry trends:
- Pre-Fabs: Most of the industry is still building homes the same way we did 100 years ago. However, a prefab home is a more industrialized approach where you build very precisely in a warehouse before transferring to the job site.
- “Back to Nature” Products: We’re seeing innovations in some materials such as hemp products, which offer new ways to build and finish homes in an environmentally friendly way.
- Healthy Homes: Indoor air quality is something that is becoming a larger topic of conversation when it comes to building a home. This impacts a variety of products but can make a big difference for homeowners.
Matt wrapped up the discussion by speaking to his charitable giving efforts. This is something that has inspired Matt since Day 1 of RISE (particularly within the “B-Corp” space). Recently, RISE has committed 1% of their revenue to environmental nonprofits and after COVID-19 subsides, they plan to double their employee head count and grow their clientele.
