National Green Building Standard (NGBS) Green Verifier Services

Synergy Home Advantage specializes in NGBS Green Verifier services.

The NGBS certification goes beyond claiming that a home is energy efficient. One of the most important benefits for a developer or builder is the independent their party verification that your apartment building or other development has been designed and built to achieve high performance in these key areas:

  1. Site Design
  2. Resource Efficiency
  3. Water Efficiency
  4. Energy Efficiency
  5. Indoor Environmental Quality
  6. Building Operation and Maintenance

So, just why would this be a perfect certification for your affordable housing project?
  1. Focuses on lowered construction costs through resources efficiency (minimizes waste)
  2. Focuses on lowered ownership costs through durable construction product selection (minimizes break-downs)
  3. Improves indoor air quality through an emphasis on proper ventilation (creates a healthier environment for the tenants)
  4. Lowers utility costs for tenants in the individual units and for the owners in the common areas (efficient lighting, water heating, and HVAC)
  5. Provides developing educational resources for owners and tenants to ensure optimum comfort and performance of the buildings.

The NGBS Green Verifier's role is to assist the owner/developer, the general contractor, and all sub-contractors in assuring that the project meets or exceeds the standards and goals set for the project. This includes plan review, energy modeling, and a minimum of three inspections per house/apartment unit to assure that the house is in compliance with all parts of the certification process.

Builders, industry professionals, and owners looking to build a new multifamily project cannot miss with the NGBS Green Multifamily Building Certification. This program is well-designed for the affordable housing market.
