The Return of the EarthCraft Awards.

Southface has seen an uptick in attendance of our EarthCraft Builder course, a pre-requisite for building certified EarthCraft homes. The increase from this year to last signals added interest in and commitment to the EarthCraft program. Southface is pushing the market to realize and take advantage of that momentum by reintroducing the EarthCraft Awards. Robert Reed, Southface Director of Residential Community Services stated, “The return of the EarthCraft Awards recognizes the surge in the industry to pre-recession levels. We felt it was important to commend the strong example that these projects and this brand represent in the world of high performance buildings.”
