Greensboro, NC (PRWEB) November 5, 2010
Steven Armstrong has been recognized by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) for having achieved a high volume of verifications for the NAHB's National Green Building Certification program. Mr. Armstrong was named #8 in the nation for the number of verifications he has provided.
The National Green Building Certification Program is administered by the NAHB Research Center, which is responsible for the accreditation of third-party verifiers and is the certifying body for the National Green Building Program.
Steven Armstrong has assessed thousands of properties for energy efficiency and implementation of green building features. He is highly respected for his ability to diagnose energy loss in a property and develop plans to make buildings more energy efficient while maintaining indoor environmental quality and sustainable design.
The NAHB Research Center was created in 1964 and serves as the testing, certifying and consulting division of the NAHB. The Research Center began offering the Green Home Verifier credential in 2008. Accredited verifiers are expected to independently confirm, through a process of document review and on-site inspections, that all green program requirements have been met for a candidate home or building development.
In addition to providing green build verification services for the NAHB, ESG Energy provides energy analysis for the EPA's ENERGY STAR Homes program. The firm has conducted green audits for several thousand HUD-owned properties and assists residential and commercial property owners with energy use analysis. In July 2010, ESG Energy launched its Carbon Footprint Certification Program, which is intended to lessen climate change by encouraging good practice in carbon measurement, management and reduction.
