Set Yourself Apart: Get Your Buildings Green Certified to the ICC/ASHRAE-700 National Green Building Standard


Until recently, residentially used buildings lagged the green certification market because in residential architecture, the margins are small, the returns are not sufficient to support certain green practices, and the cost/benefit analysis is different than for office buildings.   The National Green Building Standard ICC / ASHRAE – 700 (NGBS) has become the leading green building certification for residential buildings because it offers a flexible, rigorous, and affordable rating system.  The NGBS establishes practices for the design, construction, and renovation of green residential buildings and land developments.  Come learn about the NGBS’s requirements and understand how the certification process works. Get all the information you need to get your next project NGBS Green certified and set your project apart from the competition. 


This course is eligible for 1 AIA Sustainable Design Learning Unit Credit.
