Certification for Healthy Built Environments
Earth Advantage’s mission is to accelerate the creation of better buildings. Every person deserves to know the impact of the building they live in and work in—financially, physically and environmentally. The institute delivers knowledge to building professionals in the form of research, consulting and education that impacts architects, designers, engineers, builders, remodelers, and real estate professionals across the country.
The organization provides a suite of residential green building certifications, including Earth Advantage Home Certification, Passive House (PHIUS+), LEED® for Homes and Earth Advantage Net Zero Energy. It also provides Earth Advantage Commercial certification for new commercial buildings less than 50,000 sqare feet that meet specific green building measures. Learn more about Earth Advantage Commercial certification in this blog post about The Breathe Buiding in Portland.
The Earth Advantage Sustainable Homes Professional (SHP) accredited course is taught by Green Hammer’s own Stephen Aiguier.
In 2014, Green Hammer was recognized by Earth Advantage as LEED® for Homes Builder of the Year.
