Abstract:
Standard and Commentary Combo Pack Standard: A collaborative effort between the ICC and NAHB, the Standard provides the “green” practices that can be incorporated into new homes including multifamily buildings, home remodeling and additions, hotels, and motels, and the site upon which the green homes are located. NGBS Commentary: This companion to the ANSI approved NGBS provides valuable insight to the intention and implementation of the practices and provisions found in the Standard. The Commentary enables readers to better navigate the green building standard. Each chapter breaks down the different components found in the standard, allowing builders and remodelers to learn the best way to build green in their communities
