Clark County Commissioners adopt the National Green Building Standard

AIA/WA former president, Timothy Buckley of Greenstone Architecture, testified before the Board of Clark County Commissioners on May 25. Buckley testified in support of adoption of the Green Building Standards as a volunteer program.

Buckley spoke to how theses standards are easy to use, flexible for developers and builders, simple, and easy to follow by comparison to many other standards. This is a good starting point and one that is based on international codes (ICC). Mirroring the ICC will streamline the process and thereby help to prevent many of the road blocks that architects have encountered with other green building issues.

This is volunteer program will help promote energy efficiency, sustainability and lower impact developments and increases health benefits for the community.
