GREEN BUILDING RATING & ADVICE

                                                                                                                       GreenPoint Rating --in order to reduce workload, new projects for GreenPoint rating are no longer accepted.  Consultation on GreenPoint Rating issues is still available.

Green Building Consultation--goes beyond local or state requirements, and GreenPoint rating of Build It Green, or LEED certification levels of USGBC.  Services tailored to the goals and programs of the project, to help the client achieve the highest level of sustainability, comfort and health consistent with their budget, schedule, lifestyle and values.  Introductory rates are $50/hr for the first 10 hours, then $80/hour.
Note, to avoid conflict of interest, BuildItGreen prohibits anyone on the design team from rating the project.  That is, the green building consultant and GreenPoint Rater have to be different individuals.
