Green Builder Awards

2017 Green Home Builder of the Year Awards


2017 Green Builder of the Year Awards ceremony

The 2017 Green Builder of the Year awards were presented at the annual Earth Advantage Golf Invitational on September 7. The luncheon preceding the golf invitational at Edgefield McMenamins provides the opportunity for the Oregon home building and multi-family development industry to recognize extraordinary achievements in energy efficient and sustainable construction practices.
 
This is the 6th year Earth Advantage has assembled an outside panel of judges to evaluate the entries and elect the winners. The judges represent a wide cross section of construction and real estate experience. Hilary Bourassa, Thomas Anreise and Kaitlin Torney served as the judges for this year’s awards. Hilary is the principal broker at PDX Green Team. Passionate and well versed in sustainable building features and technology, she’s an accredited Earth Advantage Broker and an ADU specialist. Thomas is the Technical Manager at CLEAResult. A well-known building scientist throughout the Pacific Northwest, Thomas launched Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance’s Next Step Homes program several years ago and is currently managing their Efficient Home Initiative. Kaitlin is the Sustainability & Education manager at the Portland Metro Home Builders Association. In addition to running the HBA’s Home Performance Council, Kaitlin is in charge of the annual BuildRight conference in Portland and other events throughout the year that train appraisers to correctly assign the proper value to high performance homes.
