WAYNE, NEW JERSEY - July 22, 2010 - Kevin Frasco, President and Rosemarie Wilson, Project Coordinator of Craig Custom Builders, Inc., recently became part of the select group of professional builders, remodelers, and other industry professionals nationwide who have earned the Certified Green Professional (CGP) designation, identifying them as people with knowledge of the best strategies for incorporating green building principles into homes.
The CGP program is administered by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Education and sponsored by Community Builders & Remodelers Association of New Jersey. The NAHB is a Washington-based trade association representing more than 175,000 members involved in home building, remodeling, multifamily construction, subcontracting, design, building product manufacturing and other aspects of residential and light commercial construction.
In three days of course work, the CGP curriculum incorporates a variety of information tailored to green building and business practices. The CGP curriculum incorporates training by leading building industry practitioners and academics on a range of topics, including strategies for incorporating green building principles into homes using cost-effective methods of construction, and how green homes provide buyers with lower maintenance and good indoor air quality. Techniques are also discussed for competitively differentiating your home products with increased indoor environmental quality as well as energy and resource efficiency.
Green building is more than just a checklist. It’s the use of quality building practices that promote sustainability to make a home healthier and more efficient-while being kind to the ecosystem. No matter how simple or complicated your project-new or existing-it’s important to create a budget. A CGP can offer guidance on what green features to incorporate into your project so that you can stay within your budget. For more information, contact us at 973-831-8988.
