Residential Guidelines

Build It Green's Green Building Guidelines

Build It Green offers Green Building Guidelines for New Home Construction, Home Remodeling, and Multifamily Construction. The Guidelines' recommended measures were specifically developed to address climate and market conditions in California, are endorsed by credible third-party sources, and are backed by sound building science.

The Guidelines were developed and refined by a diverse set of residential building stakeholders including production builders, contractors, architects and designers, multifamily home developers, state and local government leaders, regional and national building-science experts, product manufacturers and suppliers, and green building advocates. In the past six years, numerous local governments have adopted and use the Guidelines.

GreenPoint Rated

GreenPoint Rated is a third-party verification system for the green building measures referenced in the Green Building Guidelines. GreenPoint Rated is an outgrowth of successful green building programs and resources that have been serving Californians since 2000.

The points in GreenPoint Rated correspond to recommended green building measures in Build It Green's New Home Construction and Multifamily Green Building Guidelines. Point values are assigned based on their benefits to the homeowner and the environment and reflect construction practices that exceed California's building and energy code requirements.
