What are the key principles of building Green?
HOUSEworks – What being a BuilditGreen™ Certified Green Builder means to you
HOUSEworks is a trained and certified GreenPoint Builder and can design your project so that it qualifies for a coveted GreenPoint certification
HOUSEworks can provide guidance throughout the planning and construction process that will enable a remodel to be Green with a minimal (typically not exceeding 5%) impact on overall construction costs.
We’ve been certified by Build it Green (see: Builditgreen.org) who works tightly with local building departments and is the leading Green Building authority in California. Beginning in late 2008 Green Certification has become a requirement in many municipalities for both new construction and remodels. This requirement is going to quickly become universal and is being requested by homeowners, even when not mandated.
Green certification utilizes the same 5 key principle addressed in the section above.
