Go for the Green

September 16, 2008
The National Association of Home Builders will honor excellence in green residential design and construction practices and outstanding green advocacy efforts with the 2009 NAHB National Green Building Awards.

The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB, www.nahb.org) will honor excellence in green residential design and construction practices and outstanding green advocacy efforts with the 2009 NAHB National Green Building Awards. “Home builders and housing industry professionals are instrumental in the adoption of sustainable building practices that benefit home owners, the environment and the economy,” said Ray Tonjes, NAHB Green Subcommittee chair. “We look forward to honoring their commitment to green building and sharing their innovative best practices with the residential construction industry.”

Awards will be given in the following categories: Advocate of the Year (Builder, Remodelor, Individual, Group); Project of the Year (Single Family, Remodel, Multifamily); Development of the Year; HBA Green Building Program of the Year (New and Existing); and Outstanding Green Marketing. In addition, a new category for 2009, the Local Government Award, will recognize a government body that has worked to allow and encourage green practices. The nomination for this award must come from a local home builders’ association.

To be eligible, projects must have been started after June 2007 and substantially completed by December 2008. Additional entry requirements and an online application are available at www.nahb.org/greenbuildingawards. Entries must be postmarked by January 31, 2009. Award winners will be recognized at a gala dinner on May 8, 2009, as part of the 11th annual NAHB National Green Building Conference in Dallas, Texas.
