The Coastal Bend GreenBuilt Initiative (CBGB), a High Performance Home Program of the Builders Association of Corpus Christi dba Coastal Bend Home Builders Association is a voluntary partnership of local home builders, industry supporters and sponsors committed to creating awareness and interest in the construction of high-performance, low-impact sustainable residential homes in the Coastal Bend.
CBGB does this by:
A New CBGB Home will significantly reduce your home’s energy and utility bills, as well as its water usage, and will also decrease the size of the home’s carbon footprint. This helps to promote a cleaner Environment, as well as a more sustainable way of living in the Coastal Bend.
A Certified Home Energy Rater, using the CBGB’s checklist point system, provides a measurement of the level of the GreenBuilding techniques used in the construction of a Green home. A CBGB home will be inspected and tested at several different points during its construction for compliance to the program. When the home is completed, and the final CBGB testing is done, the GreenBuilt home will then be awarded a CBGB Certification.
There are four different levels of CBGB Greenbuilt, based upon the point accumulation from the checklist. A Level 1 Green Home requires a score of 45 points, while a Level 2 Silver is 60 points. A Level 3 Gold Home must score 75 points, while the highest Level, Platinum, must achieve a score of 100.
CBGB checklists measure GreenBuilding in 7 different areas:
