Built Green

Built Green® is an environmentally-friendly, non-profit, residential building program developed in partnership with the Central Washington Home Builders Association, Washington State Department of Ecology, and other agencies in Washington State to provide you with a healthier, more efficient house.

Built Green® incorporates environmental considerations into every phase of the home building process. That means that during the design, construction, and operation of a home, energy and water efficiency, lot development, resource efficient building design and materials, indoor environmental quality, homeowner maintenance, and the home's overall impact on the environment are all taken into account.

Built Green® homes are attractive, comfortable, durable, environmentally-friendly - and save you money to own and operate. Participating Built Green® builders craft these resource-efficient homes to exceed building codes and provide homeowners with years of healthy, quality living, while protecting our precious Northwest environment.

The program provides consumers with an easy-to-understand rating system, which quantifies environmentally friendly building practices for new home construction.
