SAN DIEGO – The San Diego Green Building Council (SDGBC), an environmental nonprofit dedicated to providing education, outreach and advocacy focused on green building in the San Diego community, is now accepting project submissions for its ninth annual Green Homes Tour, which will be held on Sunday, Oct. 21.
Each year, the event brings together hundreds of members of the local community to celebrate best practices in green building and design while showcasing the innovative work of some of the industry’s top professionals.
The diverse projects include sustainably remodeled residences, urban multifamily developments, luxurious custom homes and many projects that have achieved or are seeking LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification, the top third-party verification system for sustainable structures around the world.
For this year’s Green Homes Tour, the committee will consider a variety of residential project types from throughout San Diego County, including:
Single- and multi-family homes, new construction, renovations or additions
Custom, spec and production-built homes
Third-party green certifications (LEED, Green Point Rated, etc.)
Unique home types: converted shipping containers, tiny homes, etc.
Sustainable design features (building sites, materials, water/energy conservation, indoor air quality, landscaping, etc.)
To submit a project for the Tour, complete a brief application form at http://tinyurl.com/GHT2017.
The application deadline is June 30 for priority consideration. Applicants are encouraged to submit their projects early as the number of available tour spots is limited. Additional project submissions will be accepted through June 30, space permitting.
