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 10th annual Green Homes Tour, which will be held on Saturday, Oct. 19 and Sunday, Oct. 20.
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. Due to its increasing popularity, the event is expanding to two days this year, allowing guests to visit more homesites throughout the county.
For this year’s Green Homes Tour, the committee will consider a variety of residential project types including:
Single- and multi-family homes, new construction, renovations or additions
Custom, spec and production-built homes
Third-party green certifications (LEED, GreenPoint Rated, Living Building Challenge, etc.)
Unique home types: converted shipping containers, tiny homes, etc.
Permaculture/water-wise gardens and exterior spaces
Communal living and other creative project types that promote a more sustainable lifestyle
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/ght2019.
The application deadline is May 31 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.
