What It's About:
A common perception is that Millennials are leading the charge for green building because of their commitment to sustainability. However, a recent Smart Market Report, Green and Healthier Homes, found that home buyers and owners facing retirement (age 55 and older) have the highest demand for high performance aspects, such as energy efficiency, a healthier indoor living environment, durability and more. The National Green Building Standard (NGBS) has become the leading certification for residential buildings because it offers a flexible, rigorous and affordable rating system, and establishes leading practices for green design, construction and renovation. Come learn about the NGBS’s requirements and certification process and how you can meet 55+ buyer demand and set yourself apart by getting your next project NGBS Green certified. An Accredited Verifier, who has successfully used the NGBS for new and existing 55+ projects, will be available to answer questions and provide technical assistance.
