>> Don’t Miss the Kickoff for the 2011 Green Homes Tour this Friday
Friday, May 13th 2011
Please join Triangle USGBC, the Green Home Builders of the Triangle (a Council of the Home Builders Associations of the Triangle), and City Councilwoman Mary Ann Baldwin to learn more about building a LEED for Homes and NAHB Green certified home. The Triangle is projected to nearly double in size by the year 2040 and the home building industry will reflect that growth with an increase in new home construction beginning in 2012. Does green building have a financially viable place in our residential market? What does a viable green home look like?
Hear the full story straight from the homeowner and designer on the green home building project at 2825 Barmettler Street in Raleigh, the first LEED-for-Homes and National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Green certified home inside the Raleigh beltline. What was done? Why was it done that way? How were decisions made? How much did it cost to go green? The discussion will offer tangible, discrete, and replicable techniques and methods to ensure you build the most efficient, cost effective, and relevant home.
GBCI, NAHB and AIA credits will be offered.
