At the recent International Builders’ Show in Orlando, the National Association of Home Builders and the International Code Council announced a collaboration to develop and publish a residential green building standard. The joint effort will bring uniformity to sustainable building practices, the groups said.
The NAHB Research Center, which oversaw the development of NAHB’s Model Green Home Building Guidelines, will again be used to help develop this new standard.
NAHB and ICC are seeking applicants for membership in the consensus committee for the development for the ANSI green home building standard. Applications can be submitted at www.nahbrc.org/gbstandard.
