Bill Reaves Awarded Green Certification
Bill Reaves, of Bill Reaves Construction Co., recently became one of the select group of professional builders, remodelers and other industry professionals nationwide who have earned the Certified Green Professional (CGP) designation.
That identifies him as someone with knowledge of the best strategies for incorporating green building principles into homes, according to a news release.
The CGP program is administered by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) University of Housing and sponsored locally by the Moore County Home Builders Association.
In three days of course work, the CGP curriculum incorporates a variety of information tailored to green building and business practices. The CGP curriculum also incorporates training by leading building industry practitioners and academics on a range of topics, including strategies for incorporating green-building principles into homes using cost-effective methods of construction, and how green homes provide buyers with lower maintenance and good indoor air quality.
Techniques are also discussed for competitively differentiating home products with increased indoor environmental quality as well as energy and resource efficiency.
CGP program graduates are required to maintain their designation by completing 12 hours of continuing education every three years, a portion of which pertain to green building activities.
Reaves can be reached at 673-0004 or at suprbldr@embarq mail.com.
