New LEED 3.0 Green Building Standard guidelines Incorporated into ConstructionSuite Green

December 17, 2009

UDA has incorporated the latest LEED 3.0 green building standards in addition to the NAHB Green guidelines, National Green Building Standards, Energy Star Guidelines and project workflows into the complete family of ConstructionSuite 2010 Green products. With this full range of tools, ConstructionSuite 2010 Green versions include a comprehensive listing of the latest guidelines and standards for maximizing the efficiency and energy ratings of your residential, commercial and industrial projects making it easy to succeed in the growing market.

The National Green Building Standard was recently approved by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) for all residential construction work including single-family homes, apartments and condos, land development, remodeling and renovation, and signals a new era for the nation's builders, remodelers and developers.

"The National Green Building Standard is now the first and only green building rating system approved by ANSI, making it the benchmark for green homes," said Ron Jones, who chaired the consensus committee charged with developing the standard.

"The standard provides home builders and remodelers with a much more expansive third-party rating system that they can use to achieve green certification under NAHB Green and the National Green Building Certification Program," said Mike Luzier, CEO of the NAHB Research Center.

The Research Center provides certification for NAHB Green projects, which until now have only included single-family homes. "Consumers are looking for authentic, verifiable green building practices, and now they'll find them with a true industry consensus standard for residential green building," Luzier said.

The standard defines what green building practices can be incorporated into residential development and how homeowners can maintain green homes, while also providing flexibility - allowing home builders and home buyers to make green choices based on climate and geography as well as style preferences and budget.

ConstructionSuite Green"We are proud to partner with the NAHB to offer the new National Green Building Standards and Model Green Home Building Guidelines for constructing sustainable buildings that are both cost-effective and energy efficient." said Michael Stevens, President of UDA Technologies.

"By offering both the NAHB Green Standards and comprehensive LEED Guidelines in the ConstructionSuite Green family of products, we are giving both our residential and commercial clients the latest tools to succeed in this growing market," said Stevens.
