Luxury home builder Alford Homes has received the Certified Green Professional designation of the National Association of Home Builders.
To qualify for certification, experienced professional builders must graduate from a green building education program offered by the National Association of Home Builders.
The program's comprehensive curriculum includes strategies and techniques for incorporating green building principals into homes using cost effective and affordable options. Designees must also meet prescribed standards of practice and pledge to uphold the Certified Green Professional code of ethics.
"Going green benefits both the homeowners and the environment," says Greg Alford, president of Alford Homes.
The use of sustainable green building techniques lessens the environmental impact of homes while increasing the structure's performance and health. Among the advantages for owners are higher energy efficiency, lower maintenance, and improved indoor quality that translate into savings and increased long-term value of the home.
We are committed to staying up-to-date with the latest techniques in green building and including more green materials and products into the homes we build as they become available to the building industry," Alford added.
Alford has 36 years experience in building exclusive luxury homes and was one of the founders of Hawkins-Welwood Homes, L.P. Alford Homes has been named in the Top 25 "Best Builders" by DHomes Magazine for the last three years consecutively.
