Built Green

Built Green (TM) is an industry-driven program that promotes environmentally sound building practices to reduce the impact that building has on the environment.

Currently available in Alberta and British Columbia to all members of participating Home Builders’ Associations, the program includes mandatory builder training, third-party testing, inspections and audits.

Built Green (TM) adds value to homes by recognizing and promoting the use of environmentally-friendly practices and products.

The program has four main environmental focuses:

  • Energy effciency
  • Indoor air quality
  • Resource use (including waste management)
  • Overall environmental impact

Improvements in these areas are achieved and measured through the use of EnerGuide labelling and the Built Green (TM) checklist.

How does it work?

Builders and home buyers can choose to participate in the program at one of four different levels: Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum.

Ecofinity, as NRCan Certified Energy Advisors, is proud to provide modelling, testing, training and consulting services to many Built Green (TM) builders.

The EnerGuide Rating System is a program created by Natural Resources Canada to provide a standardized measurement of the energy efficiency of new homes. The builders then work with their CEA to develop energy upgrade packages – the upgrades chosen will determine how much money you’ll save every month. Builders offering the EnerGuide Rating Service have their house plans evaluated by a Certified Energy Advisor like Ecofinity.

The energy advisor then provides a detailed, personalized report of recommended retrofits to improve the energy efficiency of your property. The Government of Canada has renewed the ecoENERGY Retrofit Grants Programs for existing houses. The report also lists the grants for all the possible upgrades that you can carry out. Get your post-retrofit audit done by one of Ecofinity’s Certified Energy Advisors.
