RALEIGH, N.C. - May 16, 2019 - PRLog -- M Squared Builders & Designers is proud to announce that the company has recently been named a Home Innovation NGBS Green Partner of Excellence for 2018. NGBS Green, which is based on the National Green Building Standard™ (NGBS), has certified more homes than any other national green home certification program. Being one of an elite group of Home Innovation's green certification participants to be recognized validates the commitment M Squared Builders & Designers has made to providing homebuyers with increased value, comfort, durability, and efficiency through its NGBS Green Certified homes.

M Squared Builders & Designers certifies all  new construction homes to the NGBS standards. These certified homes include energy and resource-conserving features such as SEER 17 heat pumps, hybrids of spray-foam and formaldehyde-free wall insulation, and sealed, insulated crawl spaces, all contributing to lower monthly operational costs. Fresh air filtration systems, sealed duct work, sealed exterior building shells, and no/low VOC paint and cabinetry contribute to the superior air quality in homes by M Squared Builders & Designers,  which meet or exceed ANSI (American National Standards Institute) standards. M Squared Builders & Designers also utilizes recycled and/or natural products and water-efficient plumbing fixtures  to ensure M Squared environmental friendliness. These inclusions only name a very few of the healthy green practices employed by M Squared Builders & Designers; these healthy green practices are explained in more detail at www.msquaredbuilders.com.

"I'm honored that my company has been recognized by Home Innovation," Michele Myers, President of M Squared Builders & Designers, Inc. stated. "From the inception of my company I've been an advocate of healthy and green high performance construction. I know it's the best and the right way to build homes; I wouldn't build them any other way."

To earn certification to the National Green Building Standard, a home must meet rigorous criteria in six categories – Lot & Site Development; Resource Efficiency; Energy Efficiency; Water Efficiency; Indoor Environmental Quality; and Homeowner Education. There are mandatory practices in each category that every NGBS Green Certified home must meet, and there are a wide range of additional optional practices in each category that a builder can select based on the applicability to buyers or renters in their market. There are also mandatory point minimums in every category in order for a home to attain the next level of certification, which is a more stringent requirement than in any other national certification program.

Since January 2009, when the National Green Building Standard (NGBS) became the first residential green building rating system to be approved by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), Home Innovation Research Labs has certified over 175,560 green single-family and apartment homes, and more than 1,680 lots within green residential land developments.
