The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), building science society ASHRAE, and the International Code Council (ICC), developers of the ICC Family of Codes for the built environment, will jointly develop the 2015 edition of the ICC/ASHRAE 700 National Green Building Standard. It will be the third edition of the standard and will mark the first time that ASHRAE has partnered on its development.

“ASHRAE’s participation is welcome news for the home building industry,” said NAHB Chairman Kevin Kelly, a home builder and developer in Wilmington, Del. “This cements the position of the National Green Building Standard as the preeminent green standard for residential construction.”

NAHB and ICC developed the standard in 2007, based on consensus committee of home builders, code officials, product manufacturers, building science and energy-efficiency specialists, and governmental representatives.

The standard was approved in 2009 by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) as the first green standard for residential construction, development, and remodeling.

The standard—now known as the ICC 700 National Green Building Standard (NGBS)—was updated in 2012 and again approved by ANSI. NGBS has been used to certify more than 32,000 single-family and multifamily homes and residential developments.
