The National Green Building Standard Green Certification (NGBS) Program has reached a major milestone with certification of the 50,000th home to meet its requirements.

Located in the Briar Chapel community in Chapel Hill, N.C., the home was constructed by the Saussy Burbank company and verified by Matt Dovenbarger of Southern Energy Management.

The achievement was celebrated on May 2, when Michael Luzier, president and CEO of the Home Innovation Research Laboratories, presented the home’s ICC-700 NGBS Green certificate to representatives from Saussy Burbank. Home Innovation administers the third-party verification program that certifies that homes are built in compliance with the NGBS.

The presentation and celebration took place in the Briar Chapel community information center during a reception kicking off the 10th Annual Green Home Tour in the Triangle area. The tour is sponsored by the Green Home Builders of the Triangle, a joint program of the HBA of Durham, Orange and Chatham Counties and the HBA of Raleigh-Wake County, and continues on May 9-10. Every home on the tour is NGBS certified tor is in the process of being certified.
