why build green?
According to the USGBC, “Buildings in the United States are responsible for 39% of CO2 emissions, 40% of energy consumption, 13% water consumption and 15% of GDP per year, making green building a source of significant economic and environmental opportunity. Greater building efficiency can meet 85% of future U.S. demand for energy, and a national commitment to green building has the potential to generate 2.5 million American jobs.”

GREEN PROFESSIONAL BUILDING
We are a Delivery Partner for GPRO, a national training and certificate program developed by Urban Green Council,that teaches people who build, renovate, and maintain buildings the principles of sustainability combined with trade-specific green construction knowledge. GPRO is designed for the experienced building professional who seeks to integrate green practices into his/her core knowledge of their trade.
