Understanding Green Building?
After carefully listening to my preferences and concerns, Jay provided a number of creative and cost-efficient options for my consideration. The project was a wonderful collaboration. Each successive work crew constructing my porch arrived on time every day and left the site tidy and clean at the end of each day. Jay oversaw each phase of the project and I couldn't be happier with the end result.
Green Home Builders
As a member of the Green Home Builders of the Triangle, Beaman Building and Realty, Inc. certifies their Green Homes to the National Green Building Standard (NGBS). Our homes undergo 3rd party review to certify that they meet and exceed the standards of the NGBS.
The Green Certification Process
Third party review of the plans prior to starting, and inspections during construction, along with actual testing of the home’s performance once it is completed, is crucial to the integrity of the Green Certification process and is required to obtain certification.
The NGBS outlines in detail, six key areas of the construction process that a builder must take into consideration when building a NGBS Green Certified Home.
Under Operations, a home is also given credit for incorporating Universal Design features that will increase accessibility into and within the home to assist someone with special mobility needs, and to allow the occupants to “age in place” as their housing requirements change over their lifetimes.
An NGBS Green Certified Home must achieve a minimum “green” score, as verified by an independent third party “rater”, in each of the six areas. The levels of Green Certification are Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Emerald, with the highest level of certification achieved by a home limited to the lowest scored level of the six areas of consideration.
