Owners of construction companies want each project to produce high-quality results. In this pursuit, Josh Salinger of Birdsmouth Design-Build has prioritized enrolling his entire project team in the Sustainable Homes Professional (SHP) training, as many other builders have done over the years.

Why Certifications Matter

Through its Priority Green Expedited Permitting Program, the City of Seattle offers faster permitting as an incentive for certified green building developments. Seattle relies on independent third-party green rating systems to set the baseline for Seattleā€™s green building standards. Built Green, a local Seattle organization, is the certification program most utilized for earning incentives. The partnership between Built Green and the City coordinates existing resources and processes towards high but achievable thresholds for energy efficiency, water conservation, waste reduction, and indoor air quality.
