Our work is rooted in technical assistance and education for the residential market. From building breadbox solar water heaters to developing the EarthCraft house program with the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association in 1999, Southface has been a leader in home performance and health for decades. Today our staff continues to train contractors, builders and architects in the best residential building techniques, and offer great consulting services for homeowners looking to live a more efficient, sustainable lifestyle.
The engineers, designers and project managers on the Southface Commercial Sustainability Services team work with clients to achieve their project goals and build capacity and know-how for project teams to carry forward. The quality work we do is possible not in spite of the mission-driven focus that defines us as a nonprofit, but rather because of it. Southface applies its technical acumen through the lens of mission-driven work in an effort to transform the design, engineering and construction industries and provide high quality technical service.
Southface integrates green technologies, certification programs and community needs assessments to collaborate on equitable visions for communities at any scale. From large cities to university campuses to small towns, the Southface Community Sustainability Services team can guide your project through certification, design or planning with an expert eye for sustainable community development.
