Get to know more about the Regional Green Building Program that is setting the standard in the DC Metro Area: EarthCraft House Virginia
After seeing a very strong need for a dedicated green building program for the East Coast’s mixed humid climate zone, back in 2004, Annette Osso, Karl Brenn, and Chuk Bowles put their heads together to create and implement a plan for what would become the fastest growing green building program for the entire mid-Atlantic. Utilizing their strong construction science backgrounds and resources from the Southface Institute, the team was able to manifest EarthCraft House Virginia into multiple divisions over the years and has grown into the regional green building program that it is today.
