The National Association of Home Builders has good news for those who have evolved their green and sustainable building practices.
The NAHB is will be adding green/sustainable categories to many of its existing programs, including the Best in American Living Awards, The Nationals, the 50+ Housing Awards, the multifamily Pillars of the Industry Awards. Winners in each program will automatically be entered in the NAHB’s Green Awards program.
The Green Awards program, itself, is adding several categories to encouraging great participation and spread recognition. Best in Green categories will include:
- 50+ Home or Community
- Single-Family Production Home
- Single-Family Custom Home
- Multifamily Project
- Interior Project
- Remodeling Project
- Sales and Marketing Strategy
- Systems-Built Home
“Green and sustainable building is no longer just a niche, we now see it in nearly every segment of the building industry,” said NAHB chairman Kevin Kelly, a home builder and developer from Wilmington, Del. “As such, it made sense to expand the NAHB Green Awards to offer additional opportunities to reward the great work in sustainable building practices we see across the entire industry.”
Winners for the Green Awards will be announced at IBS 2015 in Las Vegas, Nevada. For more information, or to apply for an award, please visit www.nahb.org/greenawards.
