EARTHCRAFT

The EarthCraft green building certification program was developed by the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association and Southface in 1999. EarthCraft is designed to address the challenging energy, water and climate conditions of the Southeast.

"The EarthCraft program is not only a great program for building a greener and more sustainable product, but it also teaches the contractor to think outside the box and to construct a more efficient product by reducing waste of material and energy loss."

- Justin Carlton, Tower Construction

EarthCraft certification helps to ensure that buildings and communities in the region meet strict criteria for saving energy and water, ensuring high indoor air quality and protecting our land and natural resources. To achieve an EarthCraft certification, a home or building is required to undergo independent third-party verification by a qualified technical advisor to confirm that it meets program requirements.

Southface can help you achieve certification in any of these categories. Learn more about the EarthCraft program, or visit our Residential, Commercial or Communities Services pages to get in touch with us about your project.
