Building Green

Why Green?

"Green building" is a holistic approach to constructing homes and other buildings that encompasses everything from site development to careful selection of materials and designs throughout the building process to the owner’s future maintenance needs.


Excel is green right from the start thanks to our partnership with ENERGY STAR, ensuring your home and any options that you select from Excel will achieve the highest levels of energy efficiency. Next, our Green Building Program takes building green to the next level with our interactive Green Building Scoring Tool. Based off of NAHB's ICC-700 standards, this interactive tool allows you to build a green-rated home with a few clicks of the mouse.

In addition to the ENERGY STAR and Green programs, Excel has developed a series of green logos that complement each level of building green. You'll find these visual references throughout our website and in our materials to help you determine which options best fit your new home goals. Excel offers options that can meet both energy efficiency and green levels. Learn more about each level of green using the key below:

AN ENERGY EFFICIENT HOME uses energy efficient products such as high performance windows and doors, tight seals on insulation and ducts, and efficient heating/cooling equipment, lighting fixtures and appliances. Homes that operate at least 30% more efficiently than a standard home are eligible to receive the ENERGY STAR® label.

A GREEN HOME uses energy efficient ENERGY STAR® equipment, fixtures and appliances as well as building materials made from recycled and/or renewable resources. Green homes are designed to harness renewable resources, reduce environmental impact and maximize energy efficiency, working toward NAHB and LEED certification standards.
