Update: 2013 California Green Building Standards Code delayed to July 1, 2014
In response to the delay of the 2013 California Green Building Standards Code, GreenPoint Rated has issued the following guidance for Version 6.0 projects. GreenPoint Rated continues to monitor the code development process and will issue updates and guidance as needed.
GreenPoint Rated Checklists and Manuals
The Checklists are a free resource. They are used to track the green building measures incorporated into a project and their associated point values.
The Rating Manuals are essential companion documents to the GreenPoint Rated Checklists. They outline the specific applications, requirements, intent, and verifications for each of the GreenPoint Rated Measures to help you understand, interpret and implement each of the available points. The Manuals are available for purchase in PDF format only for $30 each.
Green Building Guidelines - the foundation of GreenPoint Rated
The Green Building Guidelines are a comprehensive resource of best practices for green building. Guidelines are available for free as a downloadable PDF.
