The post below is taken directly from our internal team wiki. The intent of sharing it here is to give a bit more context to what it’s like working with us and lay out our motivations for doing the work that we do. We’d love to hear your feedback in the comments section below.
The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

We are here to solve problems.
We want more buildings that last centuries instead of decades. We want durability and resiliency so that we can conserve limited resources. We want to help people create sustainable shelter for generations to come.
But building problems keep occurring. Roofs leak or blow off. Windows leak or get covered in condensation. Basements (you guessed it) leak or become dank and unusable.
We know how to build so that performance problems are avoided. The fundamental knowledge about how to build better is readily available.
Yet, we keep making the same mistakes and problems keep occurring.
Why? What can we do differently to create better outcomes?
