EarthCraft Light Commercial and Sustainable Preservation are regional green building certification programs offering third-party recognition for environmentally responsible design and construction practices for small-scale, or light commercial buildings in the Southeast. These programs focus on site planning, energy and water efficiency, building durability, and improved occupant health and productivity.
EarthCraft Light Commercial is best suited for commercial building projects sized 50,000 square feet or less, however all projects may be considered on a case-by- case basis. Sustainable Preservation is appropriate for existing older buildings where retaining existing structure and systems is appropriate. These programs meet the requirements of the City of Decatur High Performance Building Ordinance.
Green Globes is a national green building certification program that also meets the requirements of the City of Decatur Ordinance.
Additional services for commercial construction include ASHRAE building audits, blower door building leakage testing, energy modeling, and plan reviews.
