By Matt Hoots
ATLANTA, GA – May 18, 2011 – The Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association (GAHBA)and Southface celebrated eleven years of green building with over 70 EarthCraft builders, contractors, designers, architects and sponsors gathered at the Southface Southeast Weatherization and Energy Efficiency Training (SWEET) Center in Atlanta. Led by David Ellis, Executive Vice President of the Greater Atlanta HBA, and Dennis Creech,

Executive Director of Southface, attendees celebrated the completion of over 6,400 EarthCraft single family homes; over 7,000 EarthCraft multifamily units; 75 EarthCraft renovation projects; five EarthCraft community developments; and nine EarthCraft light commercial
buildings, all of which have been completed over the last eleven years, addressing the increasing need for energy, water and resource efficiency in the Southeast.

The EarthCraft program also received a grant from the Georgia Environmental Finance Authority (GEFA) in 2010 to increase its engagement with home builder associations across Georgia, and to train additional building professionals on EarthCraft design and construction principles. To date, more than 100 people in 8 cities have participated in this program, with more than 20 trainings planned for the year.

Said David Ellis, “The EarthCraft builders we recognized today at this awards event routinely deliver innovative, highly marketable projects that provide their owners with comfortable living and high indoor air quality, and save them money on utilities. We congratulate them for their outstanding work.” Remarked Southface’s Dennis Creech, “We are very proud of the work our EarthCraft professionals do across the Southeast, and it’s encouraging to see demand and market share for green homes and buildings continue to grow here and across the country. While the current market is still tough, we are seeing positive signs that the next generation of homes and light commercial buildings will be increasingly green.”
