Building Certifications

Third party verified green building certifications rely on independent verifiers to authenticate that a home or building has met established performance thresholds. Regional and national third-party verified certifications have helped shift the design and construction industries toward resilience and high efficiency. We have decades of experience creating and administering building certification programs locally, regionally and nationally.

How We Can Help

Southface has helped thousands of owners, builders and architects to navigate the building certification process for many nationally recognized green building programs. In addition, we provide on-site technical assistance, including blower door tests, and the physical inspections and verifications often needed to achieve a green building certification.
