The American Society of Interior Designers and the U.S. Green Building Council said they will launch Regreen, a series of guidelines for ‘green’ residential remodeling, next month. Designed for use by residential designers, construction professionals and homeowners, Regreen includes best practices, learning programs and print and electronic resources.
“Regreen is an important collaboration between both of our organizations,” said Rick Fedrizzi, president, CEO and founding chair of the U.S. Green Building Council. “Healthy living is on the minds of many Americans and by providing the tools and resources they need to reach their sustainability goals, we’ll be furthering our collective missions of education and transforming the built environment.”
Michael Alin, executive director of the ASID, called these guidelines “a first for the industry.” “We are developing curriculum for learning programs and designing a comprehensive and user-friendly website to assist in green residential remodeling,” he added.
