The Earth Advantage Multifamily rating system provides a comprehensive standard for green buildings. Earth Advantage Multifamily certified buildings are comfortable, healthy, durable, high performance, earth-friendly and create peace of mind for their owners and occupants alike.

Building high performance is not about building differently – it’s about building smart. High performance builders use best practices and innovative construction technologies to gain efficiencies in design, systems, and materials to improve energy efficiency, create superior indoor air quality, lower water usage and use natural resources responsibly. Earth Advantage consultants are available throughout the design and construction of projects to advise project teams on ways they can improve their buildings.
