Built GreenĀ® can improve your bottom line and your customers can get more home for their money. Homes built using the Built Green program incorporate environmentally-friendly features that add value and reduce the life-cycle cost of the home. Often these features add little or nothing to the first cost of the home. At the highest levels of the program (4-, 5- and Emerald-Star) there may be some additional cost but it can be outweighed by added value.
