HOW DOES

CERTIFICATION WORK?

The Built GreenĀ® program was designed for builders and developers to set standards of excellence in Kittitas, Klickitat, Chelan, Douglas, and Yakima counties. It focuses on actions that can make a significant impact on housing, health, and the environment that are readily do-able.

 

Building projects are qualified using a Built GreenĀ® checklist organized into six environmentally-friendly action categories. Designers, builders, and consumers use the checklist prior to construction to determine which features to include in the home. Builders must engage a qualified third-party to verify the checklist. Based upon builder certification and verification, and after reviewing the application for compliance, the CWBGA awards the appropriate Certificate of Merit indicating that the home has achieved a 3-, 4- or 5-star rating.
