When you build green, You take affordable housing to the next level of performance. You give owners and residents more comfortable homes that cost less to operate, last longer, and keep occupants healthy. You keep current with leading building techniques and gain valuable experience with a team approach that improves design and construction. And of course, you help improve our environment as your buildings become more efficient, use less resources, and reduce their impact.
