NGBS Green Verifiers Participate in 2015 NGBS Development Process

Congratulations to the seven NGBS Green Verifiers (listed below) who will contribute their expertise and experience to inform the 2015 NGBS development process! In addition to these individuals, many more NGBS Green Partners have been selected to participate via Consensus Committee and Task Group involvement. You can view the full roster of development process participants online.

  • Steve Armstrong—Consensus Committee
  • Sid Koltun—Consensus Committee
  • John Barrows—Administration, Compliance, and Operations/Owner Education Task Group
  • Joe Gordon—Water Efficiency Task Group
  • Aaron Gary—Energy Efficiency Task Group
  • Kat Benner—Multifamily Task Group
  • Henry Krzysik—Remodeling Task Group

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!
