Sacramento Habitat for Humanity joined the US Green Building Council (USGBC) in 2009 and has since built 16 LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified homes.
With 8 Gold and 8 Platinum Habitat homes under his belt, Dan Wilson, the Director of Construction for Sacramento Habitat and the pioneer of SHFH’s green building efforts says, “It’s the first tie I have ever liked.”
In 2010, SHFH led by Wilson was awarded “Achievement in Excellence” by the US Green Building Council for the LEED program. In 2011 and once again this year in 2012, SHFH finished as a top 3 finalist in the nation for the USGBC.
Wilson believes, “For a small time affiliate with a limited budget, this is something to be very proud of.”
Sacramento Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit 501c(3), private, nongovernmental, ecumenical housing ministry based on Christian principles and a local affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International.
