Certified Green Professional Educational Designation
Tim Watson, of Watson Engineering Company, Inc. is now one of the select group of professionals nationwide to earn the Certified Green Professional™ (CGP) educational designation, identifying him as a Professional Engineer with the skills and the best strategies for incorporating green building principles into new home and remodeling projects.
The CGP curriculum includes three days of training from leading building industry practitioners and academics on a range of topics, including strategies for integrating green building principles into homes using cost‐effective methods of construction.
Coursework is based on the ICC 700 National Green Building Standard, the only ANSI‐approved rating system for green homes, developments and remodeling projects. The standard includes sections on energy, water and resource efficiency; indoor environmental quality; lot and site development; and home owner education.
Administered by the National Association of Home Builders, the CGP program is sponsored locally by The Southern Utah Home Builders Association.
“I look forward to helping home owners and home buyers in the Southern Utah area create green, sustainable homes built to save resources as well as utility costs,” said Tim.
