GREENING THE HOUSING INDUSTRY
(Industries Include: Conventional Homes, Modular & Manufactured Homes, Log Homes, Modular Class Rooms, Commercial Structures, Recreational Vehicles and Park Models)
These days, it’s all about “going green” – being environmentally conscious and conscientious. It’s not just a fad. It’s a responsible way of living.
But how do home & RV buyers know their purchase is truly green? How do systems built manufacturers know the materials and components they’re buying are as green as they claim to be? How can building components manufacturers and material suppliers gain green credibility?
After all, anybody can say they offer a green product. They can even have it tested and certified as such. But who reviews the certification to ensure the product isn’t just another case of “green washing” – advertising green without actually living up to green standards?
That would be us: TRA-Certification, Inc. We’re an independent, internationally accredited, third-party green certifier known for integrity and diligence. TRA is a leader in the field of systems-built engineering, certification and inspection services. We have been in business since 1967 and have provided services to hundreds of manufacturers.
Through this online directory, we’re providing factory built manufacturers upfront recognition of their ability to produce “Compliant Green Assemblies” – according to consensus standards writing bodies such as ANSI, as well as government and independent agencies, including the U.S. Green Building Council, (LEED - Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design), and the NAHB (National Association of Home Builders).
