Two Landis Homes team members, Linford Good (left) and Chris Kennel (right), recently received Green Advantage® Certification following a training session and preparation for taking a qualifying exam. Green Advantage's mission is to certify building organizations and practitioners nationally and internationally.
In order to become a Green Advantage® Certified Practitioner, individuals must demonstrate ability to analyze green construction concepts, materials, and practices by passing a Green Advantage® Exam. Particular emphasis is given to understanding the role of construction personnel in improving the environmental and health attributes of the built environment.
Landis Homes is currently building new hybrid homes and cottage homes and is seeking a silver LEED rating. The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System, developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), provides a set of standards for environmentally sustainable construction.
The certification achieved by Good and Kennel will contribute to Landis Homes’ pursuit of a LEED rating. Good, in his role as Vice-President of Planning & Marketing and Kennel as Director of Construction Services are giving oversight to the new construction.
