Built Green Program Development

O’Brien & Company has been involved in the development of more than a dozen Built Green programs around Washington State and beyond the region. The firm has coordinated and facilitated local steering committees through technical work sessions to create or update checklists, as well as compiled tip sheets and case studies, created third party verification protocols, forms, and field guides.

Our work has resulted in regionally-appropriate Built Green programs that are developed by builders, for builders, through an interactive process that encourages program ownership and participation. Since 1997, over 20,000 homes have been certified by Built Green programs in Washington State.

We have worked on the following programs:

Inland Northwest Built Green (Spokane)
Built Green Tri-Cities
Built Green Walla Walla
Tacoma-Pierce County Built Green
Built Green Santa Barbara
