Architects Information
As the push for sustainability in architecture has gained momentum in recent years, so has the need for an accreditation program to distinguish green building professionals. The U.S. Green Building Council, a non-profit organization committed to expanding sustainable building practices, has developed the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) program for just this purpose. LEED Accredited Professionals (LEED APs) have demonstrated a thorough understanding of green building practices and principles through an intense certification process. The LEED AP credential indicates that the professional has the knowledge and skills to facilitate the LEED certification process. Since 2008, the Accreditation Program has been transitioned to the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI).
You can visit gbci.org to:

  • Search for LEED APs in your area
  • Find study materials for the LEED Professional Accreditation exam
  • Register as an exam candidate

Builder/Contractor Information
Green builders incorporate environmental considerations and resource efficiency into every step of the building and development process to minimize environmental impact. The design, construction, and operation of a home must focus on energy and water efficiency, resource efficient building design and materials, indoor environmental quality, and it must take the home's overall impact on the environment into account. Green building is a comprehensive approach that requires mastery of complex building sciences. It is important that builders who want to build green are properly trained and experienced. A number of professional organizations and designations exist that can provide assurances that a builder is qualified to build green. Among these are: LEED, ENERGY STAR, or Green Globes, among others. In residential construction, the National Association of Home Builders offers a Certified Green Professional designation program that trains builders on the ins and outs of building green in a comprehensive fashion. Be sure to ask your builder if he or she is a Certified Green Professional, or what other green building credentials they hold.

Olsson Associates

Springfield, MO 65804
Phone: 417.890.8802

Olsson Associates is a multi-disciplinary engineering and consulting firm offering sustainable design solutions to public and private infrastructure projects.

Engineer Information
A consulting engineer is an independent contractor hired, usually by an architect or directly by the owner, to work on a project-by-project basis.  A consulting engineer provides plumbing, mechanical, electrical, civil, structural, or environmental services for buildings or developments. Practicing consulting engineers must be licensed professional engineers in their state of residence and must qualify to obtain licensure in other states where they practice or provide services.

“Green” engineers specialize in providing services specifically designed to provide sustainable and energy conserving solutions targeting reduced energy usage, lower utility bills, and implementation of high performance systems and building components plus providing a healthier environment for building occupants.

Finding a “green” engineer can be as easy as searching the internet or calling directly to firms to find out which companies have experience with sustainable and energy conserving designs and are certified by a national green building organization. Additionally a engineer that is a certified commissioning agent can be sought out to verify that the building is performing as designed after construction is complete.

Inspectors/Verifiers Information
Green building "verifiers" are trained and accredited by the National Association of Home Builders Research Center to verify that homes across the country meet the criteria of the national green building certification. Verifiers are accredited on an individual basis although they may work for an organization or company.
 
To become an accredited verifier, an individual must first meet eligibility prerequisites which includes training and/or experience that provides them with basic understanding of general home building practices and specific "green" building knowledge, and attend the verifier training. Staff of Home Builder Associations are not eligible to verify, and builders may not verify hoilders. Trade contractors and suppliers may not verify homes in which their company has either supplied and/or installed work.
 
It is essential to select and begin working with a verifier from the beginning of the construction process. "The Green Scoring Tool" using the "NAHB Model Green Home Building Guidelines" as its basis is available online at http://www.springfieldhba.com/ and should be a first step in the construction process in order to certify a home as green.  
 
A list of accredited green building verifiers is available through the NAHB and your local Home Builders Association.
