A highly respected building professional, Doyle has worked in the residential construction industry for more than 30 years. He currently builds homes with his son Daniel at Doyle Construction. He previously owned Viridian Northwest and Doyle Custom Homes.

Respected builder and council chair

“Daimon will be an outstanding council chair,” said Greg Lane, Executive Vice President of the Building Industry Association of Washington. “He provides a strong and highly knowledgeable voice as our residential construction industry representative on the council. His passion for both energy efficiency and building homes people can afford is critical to the council.”

A commitment to green building and energy efficiency

Doyle is a Master Certified Green Professional and NAHB Green Building trainer. He’s also a RESNET Accredited HERS rater and a certified verifier of the Energy Star, Built Green and Indoor Air PLUS programs.

An expert in the state’s building codes, he helps other builders comply as a trusted instructor teaching codes update courses over the last 20 years. In addition to his background in energy efficiency, he’s also a Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist.

A longtime leader in the industry, Doyle has served as past president of both BIAW and OMB. He’s a life director of BIAW, OMB and NAHB.

Leadership at a critical time

The Governor’s Office appointed Doyle to the council in 2022. Since then, Doyle has provided valuable insight, trying to help the council understand how to meet energy efficiency and climate goals in the most responsible manner possible.

“Daimon has spent his life learning and teaching others how to build energy-efficient, green homes that meet the needs of his customers,” Lane said. “He knows there’s a market for highly efficient, higher-end homes, but he also knows many Washington families need less expensive starter homes they can afford—and he knows what it takes to find balance.

“At a time when more than 85% of the state is priced out of purchasing homes, Washington can’t afford unnecessary costs and added uncertainty,” he said. “Daimon brings credible common-sense leadership to the council—and we desperately need it.”
