Built Green® is a network of architects, builders, subcontractors, suppliers and real estate agents working together to improve your quality of life. By providing quality homes that are cost effective to own and maintain, protect your and your family’s health and well being and help preserve our beautiful Pacific Northwest environment.


Built Green® began with an idea: There’s a way to build safe, quality homes and preserve the environment at the same time. This idea was forged into a reality through a partnership between the Home Builders Association of Kitsap County and Kitsap County Public Works who provided the grant funding along with the Washington State Department of Ecology.


Built Green® utilizes a market-based approach that encourages and promotes the use of efficient development and provides new home and remodeling project buyers with homes that are more energy efficient, provide improved indoor air quality and health benefits and promotes sustainable construction practices. Built Green® provides additional choices in housing, provides environmental and economic benefits to both the consumer and community, and encourages job creation in recycling, energy efficient products and materials.
