Certification Process

Step by step process for a multifamily green home to get NGBS Green Certified.

NGBS Multifamily Green Home Certification Process

Step 1:    Download the Builder's Resource Guide (BRG).
 
Step 2:     Score the building using the downloadable scoring spreadsheet.
 
Step 3:    Hire an accredited verifier who will register the project and obtain a unique Project ID. (A list of accredited verifiers with specific experience in large multifamily projects is also available.)
 
Step 4:    Send the design information to the verifier. Forward the scoring spreadsheet to your verifier and schedule a rough inspection before the drywall is installed.
 
Step 5:    Home Innovation Research Labs will send a Builder's Agreement to new builders.
 
Step 6:    Sign the completed rough Verification Report, which the verifier will send to Home Innovation Labs for review.
 
Step 7:    Schedule a final inspection with your verifier, and sign the final Verification Report which the verifier will send to Home Innovation Labs for review.
 
Step 8:    Home Innovation Labs will review the report and issue a "Home Innovation NGBS Green Certified" certificate, provided all documentation is complete.
