If your project involves residential buildings that are above three stories, RunBrook can provide strategic advice and help determine whether the FGBC Florida Green High-Rise Residential Building Standard is best suited to your project and goals. If so, RunBrook will work with the design team to review the required checklist and reference guide and determine which credits to pursue. RunBrook can also help compile appropriate documentation for each credit point, complete the application form and checklist, and submit it to the FGBC. RunBrook has extensive knowledge working on FGBC projects and can help streamline the certification process.
about fgbc Green High-Rise Residential Building Standard
The intent of the FGBC Florida Green High-Rise Residential Building Standard is to encourage owners of high-rise residential projects to adopt green and sustainable strategies during the design and construction of their projects and to receive recognition for their efforts. The FGBC Florida Green High-Rise Residential Building Standard covers all residential buildings that are above three stories, as defined by the Florida Building Code.
The FGBC Florida Green High-Rise Residential Building Standard involves having the the design team review the required checklist and reference guide. The team will determine which credit points will be pursued. The owner will authorize one of the design team members to be the "Designated Professional." The Designated Professional compiles the appropriate documentation for each achieved credit point as the design process evolves. Once all documentation has been collected, organized, and reviewed, the Designated Professional completes the Application Form and the remainder of the Checklist, attaches all supporting letters and documentation, and submits it to FGBC for processing. The FGBC appoints a Project Evaluator who reviews the submittal and determines its compliance with the standard and issues the certification. A certificate is delivered to the Designated Professional for use by the Owner. The project is listed on the FGBC website as a certified Florida Green High-Rise Residential Building.
