Overhauled: New Tools for Consumers & Professionals

The New & Improved

Comprehensive green building information is available at NAHB’s revised website.

The newly redesigned website combines the educational resources of NAHB with information about the NAHB Research Center’s green building certification program. The most updated information about green building techniques, educational programs, best practices and the National Green Building Standard can be found at

“NAHBGreen is an outstanding resource for builders and consumers to learn more about green building and the National Green Building Standard,” said Kevin Morrow, director of NAHB’s green building program. “The overall look of the website has changed considerably. It’s now much easier to navigate and to find the things you’re looking for.”

Morrow encourages NAHB’s state and local affiliate associations to provide a link to on their home pages.

Key aspects of the site include an overview of green building, a section on educational opportunities and detailed information about ICC 700, the National Green Building Standard. It also offers comprehensive information about the Research Center’s green certification program, including the green scoring tool that enables a builder to determine just how a home under construction rates under the National Green Building Standard.

“The website redesign makes it easier for all audiences that want to learn more about green building to find the information that meets their needs,” Morrow said. “We hope people will visit the site and give us feedback.”

Tabs on the landing page lead users to key areas:

  • Green building overview
  • Educational resources
  • ICC 700 National green building standard
  • About the NAHB Green program

Other quick links lead users to information about the Research Center’s certification and green scoring tool, as well as information about the National Green Building Conference and NAHB’s Certified Green Professional designation program.

“New tabs will make it easier for users to find the information they’re looking for, whether it’s specific to NAHB’s role in education and advocacy or something about the certification process,” Morrow said.
