What is Green Building?
Green building (also known as sustainable building) involves designing and building homes using the latest environmentally friendly and energy efficient techniques. The result is a home that not only minimizes its impact on the environment, but also maximizes the overall quality of life for its inhabitants.

Green Building Award
The City of Santa Cruz recognizes construction projects that utilize the latest in environmentally conscious and sustainable design and building practices.
In order to be eligible to receive a green building award for your home, there are guidelines that must be followed in the design and build process. Projects that wish to receive a Green Building Award must obtain a minimum number of points - awarded based on various environmentally conscious aspects of a structure. The number of points needed to achieve a Green Building Award is based on the scale of the project (more points are needed for bigger projects).
At Golden Visions Design, we are dedicated to advancing green building practices throughout our design process. We currently hold the most Green Building Design Awards in Santa Cruz County and look forward to tackling all green building design projects.
