Green building isn't a passing trend. It's our future.

Anyone who has lived in the Gulf Coast climate can tell you, it's a different world here. Anyone can claim to be green. GBGC homes and products are different. We adhere to the one and only national green standard and require strict compliance and third party verification procedures. There's no way around it. Only the most efficient, eco-friendly homes and products can receive the GBGC certification.
