Each year the Home Innovations Research Lab chooses among its builders, remodelers, verifiers, architects, and program champions to be among the NGBS Green Partners of Excellence. This year, our own Steve Armstrong was selected among 18 other accredited verifiers for this honor. The following is from their press release: Today, Home Innovation Research Labs recognizes 39 NGBS Green Partners for outstanding contributions to advancing green building in their communities and commitment to voluntary, market-driven, third-party certification of high-performance homes. The 2014-2015 Home Innovation NGBS Green Partners of Excellence include 9 residential building companies; 18 accredited verifiers – including 4 “Rising Stars” and several sustaining partners who’ve been recognized multiple years; 8 architectural firms; and 4 exemplary program advocates from across the country. “As the home building market continues its rebound,” said Home Innovation Labs president and CEO Michael Luzier, “dedicated partners like these prove that participating in our rigorous third-party certification program isn’t a gimmick or a passing fad – it’s a strategic business decision that is paying dividends and changing the residential marketplace.
