Built Green is an environmentally-friendly, non-profit, residential building program of the Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties, developed in partnership with King County, Snohomish County, and other agencies in Washington State.
Multifamily building projects are qualified using the Multifamily Built Green checklist, organized into environmentally friendly action categories. Currently one, two, three, four and five star levels of performance are achievable. Builders, architects and developers use the checklists prior to construction to determine which features to include in the home. When construction is complete, builders send a signed copy of the checklist to the MBA, certifying that the home identified in the application contains the identified features.
Built Green is organized into the categories of Build to Green Codes and Regulations, Site and Water, Energy Efficiency, Health and Indoor Air Quality, Materials Efficiency and Promote Environmentally Friendly O&M.
The City of Seattle offers incentives related to some Built Green developments. For more information see Incentives & Assistance.
