“We are excited to be on the West Coast.

Davila. “It represents our continued ironclad commitment to promote a state of sustainability and serve our members, helping them foster growth and success in Florida’s green building industry.”
FGBC is by far the largest certifier of green residential and commercial construction, local governments, communities in the state with over 25,000 green certified projects since 2000 including nearby Lakewood Ranch, Babcock Ranch, Manatee County, and the City of Dunedin.
“Tampa Bay has been a great supporter of FGBC. We are excited to reinforce our physical presence in the area. We want to be at the center of an ecosystem that shares our aspirations,” added FGBC President Bill Kachman. “The new space strengthens our existing presence in Southwest Florida and strategically positions FGBC to better serve our members and projects.”

Over two decades ago the non-profit FGBC brought together industry professionals from the construction, government, academic and research communities to create green building standards tailored specifically to Florida.
FGBC “Florida Green” standards take a scientific approach and were developed with state-specific criteria. They address Florida’s hot-humid environment, distinctive topography, unique geology, resiliency, and natural disasters.
