New Home Construction Green Building Guidelines cover

These residential Guidelines were developed for the following reasons:

  • To provide local governments with an educational tool for city staff, builders and homeowners interested in green residential construction
  • To present a range of voluntary measures for builders to choose from when constructing a green home in California
  • To create a policy foundation for local governments interested in implementing a green building program
  • To establish regional consistency in green building guidelines to increase predictability for builders
  • To integrate varying residential initiatives in order to achieve greater simplicity and local applicability
  • To offer a set of guidelines developed by an independent, third-party source.
