Highlight what makes your NGBS Green Certified home built to last - Resilience certification.

NGBS Green+ RESILIENCE

NGBS Green+ certification provides a streamlined, supplementary, third-party recognition for NGBS Green Certified homes based on their exceptional performance in one (or more) of six categories of green practices, including RESILIENCE. Resilient buildings are intentionally designed to stand up to natural and manmade disturbances and to maintain or regain functionality after such events. This certification is important for building homes that will last and are adapted to different climate zones and natural disaster risk areas. 

Homes demonstrating resilient construction can earn the NGBS Green+ RESILIENCE certification.
