HBA St. Louis: Green and Healthy

Posted by:

The Home Builders Association of St. Louis & Eastern Missouri has been one of the nation’s leaders in terms of educating its members and homebuyers on the benefits of Building Green and having a healthy home environment.

The HBA has an annual “Tour of Green Homes” and a section of its website dedicated to a “Healthy House.”

The HBA’s Green Building Council provides quarterly seminars, and has an active green building verification program called GBI-St. Louis.

The verification process for the GBI-St. Louis Program is handled through a third-party, and homes are must match the NAHB Model Green Building Guidelines.

In order to apply for verification through GBI-St. Louis Program, the builder must be a member of the Green Building Council.

The “Healthy House” section of the HBA’s website includes consumer information on potential allergy and asthma triggers and a guide to indoor air quality.

The HBA also has Building Green and Healthy House displays at local tradeshows. Both Building Green and Healthy Home also feature remodeling as well.
