Builders Lab

Modernizing Methods for Building Better

The Builders Lab, a new program launching in 2024, works with emerging leaders in architecture, engineering, and construction to implement and scale industrialized methods that improve housing delivery across the U.S.


A Clearing House for Construction Innovation

We provide neutral due diligence on a wide range of business models and technologies pursuing industrialized building methods, vetting methods that improve housing affordability and sustainability and have real potential for market adoption.

Collaborative Learning & Research

Our deep relationships with UC Berkeley, Lawrence Berkeley National Labs, and other entities ensure that policy and academic researchers and emerging innovators benefit from direct exposure and collaboration.

Systems Change in the Built Environment

Recent business failures underscore entrenched systemic barriers limiting modernization in architecture, engineering, and construction. Our programming work, in collaboration with Terner Center and other research and policy organizations, supports systemic solutions.
