Home Innovation Research Labs certifies homes to the ICC-700 National Green Building Standard(tm) (NGBS), which has undergone the full consensus process and received approval from the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). Home Innovation Research Labs provides project certification to the NGBS. NGBS applies to both single-family homes and multifamily buildings. Certification options also exist for new construction, remodel projects (both whole-home and functional areas such as a kitchen or bathroom) and land development/subdivision. Homes may qualify for a bronze, silver, gold, or emerald certification level depending on the number of green building practices met.
