Green Building Betenbough Homes West Texas

Betenbough Homes has been named an NAHB Research Center Green Partner of the Year for 2011. Being one of only a handful of the Research Center’s green certification participants to be honored with this award validates the commitment Betenbough Homes has made to providing its customers with increased value, comfort, durability, and efficiency through its Green Certified homes.

“This is the first year since the Research Center began offering certification services to the ICC-700 National Green Building Standard that we have presented awards to our program partners,” said Research Center President Michael Luzier. “After administering the program for three years, we felt compelled to recognize the significant commitment to green certification, innovation in building science, and leadership in the residential construction industry that our partners have displayed. We are awed by what companies like Betenbough Homes are achieving in the field and the market transformation they are accomplishing through a voluntary, market-driven program.”

In 2011, Betenbough Homes constructed 334 homes in Lubbock, Midland and Odessa that were Green Certified by the Research Center to the National Green Building Standard.

“Betenbough Homes is proud to be the only builder in West Texas certifying green homes under the National Green Building Standard,” said James Jordan, Betenbough Homes purchasing manager. “We are committed to advancing green practices in home building. Building quality, green homes is one more way we can be good stewards of our environment and resources and offer added value to our homebuyers.”

To earn certification to the National Green Building Standard, a home must meet rigorous criteria in six categories – Lot & Site Development; Resource Efficiency; Energy Efficiency; Water Efficiency; Indoor Environmental Quality; and Homeowner Education.
