Asheville, North Carolina is a hotspot of green construction. We have many local builders and sub-contractors that specialize in green building techniques. It has become the norm, rather than the exception, in our local construction industry.
The homes below consist of Energy Star Qualified homes, LEED Certified homes (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), North Carolina Green Built homes, and NAHB (National Association of Home Builders) Green Building Standard homes. Energy Star (under the Environmental Protection Agency), LEED (under the U.S. Green Building Council), and NAHB are all national programs.
North Carolina Green Built (formerly called “HealthyBuilt”) is a statewide program that is part of the Green Built Alliance (formerly the WNC Green Building Council). There are several levels of Green Built certification: Certified, Silver, Gold , Platinum, Net Zero Ready, and Net Zero.
