Let us be your guide

We’ll help you make quick work of navigating even the most complex regulations, protocols, and standards.

The certification standard consists of individual measures within four performance categories

Certification clients receive in-person consultation and project verification, as well as a suite of guidance documents, including a measure guide, plan templates, deconstruction best practices guide, and regulatory overview. Measures and guidance documents have been developed with input from experts in state, local, and regional government, academia, and the building and deconstruction industries.

The Safe + Sustainable certification process is streamlined, easy to understand and document, and adds value to projects through:

  • assisting builders in meeting mission goals,

  • reducing risk and potential liability related to worker and neighbor health and safety,

  • advancing pre-construction practices through adherence to a clear and attainable standard,

  • improving community relations through responsible practices and effective communications,

  • and improving builders’ public profile through demonstrated commitment to responsible and sustainable practices
