Community Certification

Southface offers community-wide sustainability certification services through EarthCraft and other green building programs. We realize that every community’s capacity for change is different and we work to find solutions that can endure the changes every community experiences. Whether your community is a small town, large city, university campus, nonprofit or neighborhood association, Southface will work with you to engage and implement appropriate sustainability solutions.

How We Can Help

Southface has helped thousands of owners, builders and architects to navigate the certification process for many nationally recognized green building programs. In addition, we provide on-site technical assistance, including diagnostic testing, design consultation and the physical inspections and verifications often needed to achieve certification for your community or campus.
