Pulte Homes has been recognized as Builder of the Year by the Florida Green Building Coalition (FGBC) for the most single-family homes certified in 2020.
FGBC, a certifier of green residential and commercial construction and local governments, recognized the homebuilder for using environmentally friendly green products, best practices and sustainable techniques. Its certification programs are the only standards with state-specific criteria to address Florida’s hot and humid environment, climate and natural disasters.
Certification is based on more than 300 factors in eight categories, including energy performance, water conservation, lot choice, site conditions, health, materials and disaster mitigation. The homes are then certified as a Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum green home.
Pulte Homes lead the state in overall certified green homes, with more than half of its homes achieving Platinum status.
