We build green! We’ve been recognized as a 2018 NGBS Green Partner of Excellence

ngbs green partner of excellence

We’re one of four Habitat affiliates to be recognized as a Home Innovation’s National Green Building Standard Green™ Partner of Excellence.

Because we are called to build a world where everyone has a decent place to call home, we are proud to meet rigorous standards for building energy- and resource-efficient homes. Our NGBS™ Habitat homes are not only sold with an affordable, responsible SONYMA mortgage, but are energy and cost efficient as well. All of our new construction projects are NGBS™ certified.

NGBS™ Habitat homes mean families live in healthier, more comfortable and more efficient homes that benefit not only the family, but their neighborhood and our entire world. With lower utility costs and environmental concerns, families will have a comfortable and affordable home for years to come. We think that’s pretty cool.

Since 2016, we’ve built and sold NGBS™-certified homes in Sheridan Hollow and NGBS™-certified homes in the South End neighborhoods of Albany.

To earn certification to the National Green Building Standards™, a home must meet rigorous criteria in six categories: Lot & Site Development; Resource Efficiency; Energy Efficiency; Water Efficiency; Indoor Environmental Quality; and Homeowner Education.

For over a decade, we have voluntarily and enthusiastically participated in green building programs, including NYSERDA and LEED certification programs. We look forward to building more robust, sustainable communities in the future.
