Builders should select a rater they would like to work with prior to the start of construction.
The rater will review preliminary plans, visit the home once framing is complete, and visit the home again upon construction completion.
Throughout the construction process, the builder may be asked to provide documentation, including schedules, material lists, product details and photographs to assist the rater.
Once the checklist has been completed, the rater will review the score with the builder. The checklist will then be submitted to Green Built Michigan for processing. A copy of the checklist will remain on file at the Green Built Michigan office. A certificate showing the home has been certified will be sent to the rater or builder. The builder has the opportunity to purchase a certified plaque for this home.
