Congratulations to the 2018 Green Builder of the Year Award Winners

October 17, 2018 | By: Peter Brown

The 7th annual 2018 Earth Advantage Green Home Builder of the Year Awards were presented to a packed audience at McMenamins Edgefield on September 27. Builders, developers, and architects submitted applications in eight categories that recognize the very best sustainable and energy efficient construction practices by builders and project teams working with Earth Advantage to certify their projects. A panel of three independent judges reviewed the applications, as well as performance testing data supplied by Earth Advantage, and selected the winners. Additionally, there are four other awards won based on numerical superiority, and one award, the Construction Manager of the Year, where our technical department determines the winner.
