Colorado Housing Facility Becomes 500,000th Home Certified to National Green Building Standard

Permanent supportive housing facility, Bluebird, located in Boulder, Colorado, has become the 500,000th green home to the National Green Building Standard (NGBS) just recently. The development is a housing tax credit project that provides supportive housing to those experiencing homelessness.

According to the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), The NGBS Green program, administered by Home Innovation Research Labs, is a comprehensive and rigorous certification that recognizes homes for their commitment to sustainability. Achieving this milestone highlights the growing commitment of home owners, builders and communities across the nation to create more sustainable and resilient living spaces.

“We are thrilled to reach the monumental achievement of certifying the 500,000th green home in the NGBS Green program,” said Michelle Foster, VP of Sustainability at Home Innovation Research Labs, in a press release. “This accomplishment underscores the industry’s commitment to the design and construction of sustainable buildings that have a smaller impact on the planet and a big impact on the resident’s lives. Bluebird also showcases the positive impact that sustainable housing can have on our communities.”
