The GBA has varying levels of access, based on two user groups: the general public and Green Builder Coalition members. Free of charge, our public users will be able to compare two green building programs at one time, and will have access to limited content describing the selected programs. (A user account is required for free use.) Coalition members will have the ability to compare three programs simultaneously, and view more extensive content and descriptions of the compared programs.
The current green building programs within the Green Building Administrator are Energy Star Version 3 (EPA/DOE), LEED for Homes (USGBC), and the ICC 700 National Green Building Standard (NAHB).
The Green Builder Coalition is also interested in incorporating national model codes, other green building programs and additional features that our Coalition members would like us to consider. We will periodically update our Technical Assistance page to alert our visitors as to which programs or freatures are under consideration and their approximate timeframe to launch.
