Comparing Residential Green Building Certification Programs
Event Description

What is the difference between the main programs and which should you use?

Residential Green Building Certifications are great tools you can use to make sure your next project meets the 5 pillars of green building:

Energy | Health | Materials | Water | Place.

Using these tools, you can manage a project from design through early operations to maximize all pillars.

Renovations through new construction, single-family through high rise mixed use multifamily, we will compare and contrast the main green building rating system so you can determine which is right for you and your clients.

We will look at who managed these programs, what types of living spaces they apply to, prerequisite and credit overview, difficulty, who can help, quality assurance, and costs.

Bonus - We will discuss how they may be required or rewarded to achieve major tax benefits for low income or market rate housing.

Programs include:

  • LEED for Homes
  • Enterprise Green Communities
  • National Green Building Standard
  • GreenStar Homes Certification

Speakers will also reference the living building challenge and LEED O + M as well.
