Renovation Program

Consistent with our other programs, Built Green's Renovation programs focus on the same seven categories: energy & envelope, materials & methods, indoor air quality, ventilation, waste management, water conservation, and business practices. The programs are affordable, and in select markets, incentives and rebates are available.

Three Single Family Renovation Types: 

- Whole House (75% or more): ERS required (Single Family Checklist applies).

- Renovation (40 – 70%) as well as a secondary suite: ERS required.

- Small Home Improvements (less than 40% and/or bathroom, or kitchen, or basement): ERS is encouraged and rewarded, but not mandatory.

High Density Renovation Pilot

Now in pilot phase, the HD Reno program is contained within the High Density New Construction program checklist. The main differences affect Energy & Envelope, Materials & Methods, and Waste Management; further details are outlined here.
