Wanted: 2018 NGBS Consensus Committee Members


Green home builders, remodelers and designers and others sustainability enthusiasts are encouraged to apply to the committee that will develop the 2018 version of the ICC/ASHRAE 700-2015 National Green Building Standard.

NAHB and its partners in the standard, ASHRAE and the International Code Council, update the content every three years. This window enables them to learn from certification case studies and advances in green building practices to develop the most timely and relevant product.

The Home Innovation Research Labs, which has certified nearly 100,000 projects to the standard since the first edition was introduced in 2009, will again serve as secretariat of the standard development process.

Visit its standard development webpages to learn more about how to submit a committee nomination or to serve on one of the task groups that advise the committee on green building practices.

Applications must be received by Feb. 6 for a committee slot, although task group applications will be open longer.

To learn about green and sustainable building and remodeling programs at NAHB, contact Jaclyn Toole at 800-368-5242 x8225.
