NARI and GreenStar Form Alliance

September 13, 2013

The National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) and GreenStar have formed a strategic alliance to provide green training and certification to the remodeling community.

GreenStar is a residential building standards and certification program available in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio and Wisconsin. This program certifies homes via an objective, third-party verification system that assures consumers that their remodeling project meets the program requirements and is constructed as designed.

NARI’s Green Certified Professional (GCP) certification prep program “High-Performance Remodeling” has incorporated GreenStar training, and GreenStar will now award points toward its project certifications for those who have earned a NARI GCP.

“NARI’s High-Performance Remodeling course and GCP certification provides remodelers the technical tools needed to build GreenStar certified projects,” said Dan Taddei, NARI director of education and certification. “The industry has been looking for a way to recognize projects such as additions or kitchen and bath remodels as being remodeled green – GreenStar does it.”
 
“GreenStar marks a new era for remodelers across the country,” said Michael Anschel, GreenStar’s director of development. “Now there is finally a comprehensive, robust, legitimate green remodeling tool that anyone can use. The debate over what constitutes ‘green’ is over. Remodelers can certify everything from a bathroom, kitchen or even windows and siding replacement – all the way to a whole home remodel – and offer something unique and valuable to their clients.”
