Michigan Greenstar Remodeling Contractor Qualifying Training
AES, Next Building Forum & MNGS have partnered to bring a Remodeling Program that allows homes to participate in a green certification without going to the lengths and costs of LEED for Homes, National Green Building Standard or GreenBuilt Michigan.
We are offering a major discount to the training, design review and project registration for those attend the pilot training, go through a pilot project and give us constructive feedback on how to make this program more relevant to Michigan.
Currently the checklist and manual are written on Minnesota guidelines but the cold weather climate program is applicable in our climate zone.
