Building green is a simpler way of referring to the construction of a high performance, healthy structure. A certified green building is one that is well engineered for energy efficiency, designed to last longer, avoid many maintenance issues, as well as use sustainable materials to avoid indoor air toxins. A sustainably built high performance structure also uses resources wisely, including water and land. A certified green home or commercial building offers value in many ways. Most important, a certified structure can provide a homeowner or developer with peace of mind. You can have confidence that an independent expert, such as an Earth Advantage Institute technician, has verified that your home is performing to its highest potential and offers a healthier environment for you and your family.
