About the partners:
|What is Built Green® ? Built Green is an
environmentally-friendly, non-profit, residential building program of
the Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties,
developed in partnership with King County, Snohomish County, and other
agencies in Washington state to set standards of excellence that can
make a significant impact on housing, health and the environment.
Green homes are designed to provide homeowners with comfortable,
durable, environmentally friendly homes that are cost-effective to own
and operate. These resource-efficient homes are crafted to exceed
building codes and provide homeowners with years of healthy, quality
living, while protecting our families and the precious Northwest
environment. The program provides consumers with easy-to-understand
rating systems, which quantify environmentally friendly building
practices for remodeling and new home construction, communities and
multifamily development units.
Who is Built Green®?
Built Green is a membership organization comprised of builders,
developers, architects, subcontractors, suppliers, lenders, and real
estate agents working together to improve quality of life in King and
Snohomish Counties. The Built Green program accomplishes this by using a
menu of options that provide quality homes which, compared to standard
homes, are more cost-effective to own and operate, healthier, safer, and
more protective of our beautiful Pacific Northwest environment.
Look for the Built Green Logo.
The Built Green logo is assurance that your builder has certified that
your new home contains selected Built Green features and meets the
criteria on the Built Green checklist.
