The National Green Building Standard™ (NGBS) provides practices for the design, construction, and certification of green multifamily residential and mixed-use buildings, including:
A new green multifamily building or the residential portion of a mixed-use building can earn Bronze, Silver, Gold, or Emerald certification, depending on the number of green practices successfully incorporated in its design and construction. Existing multifamily buildings can also attain one of the four levels of NGBS Green certification when remodeled according to the NGBS requirements.
The commercial portion of the building can either earn Certified for Core and Shell or Certified for Full Mixed-Use Building Compliance.
