The National Green Building Standard is the benchmark for certification of newly constructed homes for adherence to above code energy efficiency and observance of “green” construction practices related to home construction techniques, efficient use of materials and resources, protecting and promoting water conservation and indoor air quality, and education of new homebuyers to all of the practices required to achieve a certified green home. Joe will be part of a Consensus Committee which is a wide group of builders, architects, municipalities, code officials, EPA, US Department of Energy, and others. Thus the National Green Building Standard is not merely a builder industry gimmick but rather a well-established process for rigorous adherence to national standards and approved by the American National Standard Institute (ANSI).
Congratulations Joe and we appreciate your hard work!
