Official Recognition of our Green-ness
The Build it Green rating system helped guide our remodel project from start to finish. During the design phase, we went through the GreenPoint Rated scoring criteria one by one, selecting which credits we wanted to build into our project. The checklist pointed out some ideas we never would have thought of on our own, and helped us cut through the universe of possibilities and focus in on areas that the smart people who developed the system had already thought through. We achieved almost every single credit we attempted, and are very proud of our score of 180 points. We scored most of our points for energy efficiency, but also scored well for indoor air quality, sustainable resources, water, and community.
