REGREEN: The Nation’s First Green Residential Remodeling Guidelines

REGREEN logoREGREEN® is the nation’s first and most comprehensive green residential remodeling program. Co-developed by ASID and USGBC, REGREEN integrates a whole-house, systems-thinking approach with professional collaboration. Launched in 2008, the program is geared toward interior designers, architects, contractors, builders, manufacturers, project managers, and even consumers who want to renovate in an environmentally-respectful manner with a distinct focus on energy-efficiency.

Visit the REGREEN website for more information.

The REGREEN Residential Remodeling Guidelines© are a set of best practices available on the website in downloadable PDF format for convenient, off-line portability. The Guidelines dissect the scope, integrated pre-design issues, and materials for typical residential renovations and provide environmental strategies to help you green your project. The interactive, web-based Strategy Generator offers a customized list of implementation measures appropriate to every design and construction phase. The website also provides a green product checklist, detailed home assessment form, and myriad of recommended sources for additional information.



REGREEN includes a range of online and in-person programming and offers 18 hours of CEUs. Self-paced courses cover kitchen and bath renovations, home performance audits, and deep energy retrofits. The instructor-led Implementation Workshop addresses industry-specific challenges designers routinely encounter. The interiors-focused course addresses basic building science, moisture management, and air movement from the designer's perspective. It then delves into spatial relationships and adjacencies, FF&E selection, client education, and source control for healthy indoor air quality. The REGREEN workshop synthesizes baseline knowledge from individual studies and tackles "rubber meets the road" issues of real projects.

Case Studies
Sometimes seeing is believing. The website features a growing number of residential renovation case studies from across the country that put REGREEN principles into action. Each green remodel includes details such as before/after photos, contract documents, project goals, site considerations, materials and resource efficiencies, and projected cost savings attributable to high-performance building strategies. Most importantly, each case study describes lessons learned derived throughout the process that serve as a cautionary tale for future projects.

REGREEN Trained™ Certificate Program
Design professionals can differentiate themselves in the marketplace by becoming REGREEN Trained. Professionals who successfully complete the rigorous curriculum receive a Certificate of Completion and access to the REGREEN Trained mark for use on business collateral. Certificate holders also receive online recognition on the REGREEN website. For a current list of REGREEN Trained professionals, see below.
