National Green Building Standard™
Live Greener. Live Better.
You can go green with confidence because Addison Homes partners with Home Innovation Research Labs to certify homes to the rigorous National Green Building Standard™ (NGBS).
Living green is about embracing better ways to live. It’s about healthier homes. It’s about increasing energy and water efficiency. It’s about helping improve the communities in which we live. Green certification by Home Innovation Research Labs recognizes residences that meet the highest environmental performance standards.
As an independent, third-party inspection agency, Home Innovation awards its green certificate only to homes in compliance with the ICC 700 National Green Building Standard — the only residential green building rating system approved by ANSI as an American National Standard.
NGBS certification goes well beyond saying a home is energy efficient; it verifies that a home is designed and built to achieve high performance in six key areas: Site Design, Resource Efficiency, Water Efficiency, Energy Efficiency, Indoor Environmental Quality, and Building Operation & Maintenance. So living in a home built to NGBS is truly living green.
