PowerPoint Presentation | Green Pyramid | St. John’s Housing Partnership Green Building Summary | Affordable Housing Low-Cost Green Items | Florida Green Building Coalition Green Checklist | Webinar Transcript
This webinar, the first in a series designed to share innovative solutions to affordable housing developers dealing with escalating prices and implementing additional regulations, will kick off the series to address ‘Green Building’ design. As we acknowledge the outcome benefits the environment and occupants, implementing green building design costs can be challenging to the non-profit organization’s budget and goal to produce affordably-priced housing. This can be even more difficult in rural areas where materials and resources may not be readily available. Presenters will showcase several projects that are successfully implementing Green Building practices into their affordable housing developments and share their best practices for green building on a budget and constructing net zero energy homes for low-income buyers, that can be replicated by all affordable housing developers to reduce costs.
This webinar is intended for non-profit housing developers, small affordable housing builders, Tribal entities, rural government entities
