EarthCraft Virginia is transforming to serve an even broader audience by expanding its efforts in education, consultation and certification. As Viridiant, the organization will do more to demonstrate how the latest building science can set a path for businesses and homeowners to create structures that are more affordable, livable and durable.
The new name recognizes the group’s expansion into Washington, D.C. and Maryland, and its intention to broaden services. While Viridiant will continue to offer the EarthCraft family of programs, it also plans to add more services and certifications in areas such as in-home energy monitoring, utility allowances, online energy assessment tools and unbiased consultation on specialties such as solar energy and energy-efficient home mortgages.
“We’re pleased Viridiant will continue administering the EarthCraft certification program as they broaden their spectrum of energy-efficient related services,” said JD Bondurant, Director of VHDA’s Housing Credit Program. “Green building continues to play an increasingly vital role in affordable housing and we look forward to Viridiant’s continued leadership in Virginia’s sustainable construction efforts.”
