What is REGREEN?

What is REGREEN?

As an Industry Partner of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID), our company is invited to participate in various events offered through the organization. We were recently invited to a training program being offered by ASID in partnership with the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) called “REGREEN”.

REGREEN was launched in March 2008 with the release of the REGREEN Residential Remodeling Guidelines. These guidelines, developed by a diverse group of industry experts, address the major elements of any green renovation project, including the site of the home, water efficiency, energy and atmosphere, material and resources, and indoor environmental quality. The guidelines can be applied to a variety of home remodeling projects, from a bathroom remodel to a full gut rehab. The REGREEN program also includes a Strategy Generator tool to help determine the most effective green solution for any aspect of your green residential remodeling project.

Professionals who want to demonstrate their mastery of REGREEN can complete the full REGREEN coursework and become REGREEN certified. After attending a day-long REGREEN seminar last month, Grace decided to pursue this certification, and now holds the official title of REGREEN Trained Professional.

We will be implementing the REGREEN principles into Ragsdale company practices wherever possible. In fact, we are already hard at work evaluating our vendors, scrutinizing our preferred products, and developing a more stringent field procedure for handling jobsite waste more efficiently.

 If you are interested in pursuing a green remodeling project, Grace can serve as your REGREEN consultant and/or project manager, ensuring the seamless execution of your project. The rest of the Ragsdale crew is ready to assist as well! With a wide array of water-based, low and zero-VOC paint and stain solutions, we can bring an exquisite and green finish to any residential remodeling project! Check out the Environmental & Safety Concerns page on our website to learn more about the many steps we take to conduct business in an environmentally sustainable way.
