Why do we need USGBC Texas Best Practices Champions

Less than twenty percent (20%) of all new construction is built above minimum code.  This means that we are failing eighty percent (80%) of the time to implement better designs, advanced technologies or world class processes that could make the places we live, learn, work and play healthier, more efficient and prosperous.  USGBC Texas Best Practices Champions are:

  • Regional Best Practices Leaders, who consistently implement Proven Best Standards of Care Designs, Advanced Technologies and World Class Processes.
  • Members of the USGBC Texas Chapter and part of the USGBC Texas Best Practices Committee.
  • Making personal and professional commitments to assist our USGBC Texas Chapter Members overcome  obstacles preventing access to Healthy, Efficient and Prosperous Buildings and Communities.
