Single family green building certification continues to expand in the marketplace through a combination of consumer demand and code requirements. Local municipalities are either requiring or incentivizing certification for new homes and major renovation projects. SK Collaborative provides certifications that meet the City of Decatur High Performance Building Ordinance. Contrary to common wisdom, when green building and energy efficiency techniques are considered early in the design phase, additional expenses are minimized or eliminated, and projects are assured a smooth path to certification. We work with developers, architects, and contractors to make sure that their projects meet program requirements, helping them to create affordable, comfortable, healthy, and efficient homes that their clients love and improve their reputation.
