Fänas Architecture’s blood runs green with a commitment to responsible, green architecture and design. We are proud members of the Colorado Green Building Guild, LEED AP, Boulder Green Points Certified, and are Green Advantage Certified. Sustainable building practices are simply part of our approach toward any project. However, when applicable, we pursue LEED Certified projects and other building recognitions. More specifically, Fänas Architecture is proud to be a founding member of the Colorado Green Building Guild.
The Colorado Green Building Guild (CGBC) was founded in Boulder and is still based here. As local architects, we are proud to support this organization not only as members, but also as leaders within the organization. Elizabeth Smith sits on the board of directors for the Colorado Green Building Guild as a statement of her commitment to local architecture and responsible, green building. Our continued membership with this organization helps keep our firm up to date on the latest green technology, as well as connecting us to high quality sustainable building materials.
The CGBC was founded in 2004 by a group of professionals who wanted to make a positive impact on the Boulder community. Boulder is a leader in creating mandatory green building standards for all new residential projects and renovations larger than 500 square feet. The CGBC takes this spirit one step further in creating even higher standards in order to create healthier and more energy efficient spaces. They believe that “green building is good building”! More recently, the board of the “Boulder Green Building Guild” voted to evolve the organization into the “Colorado Green Building Guild” to include the entire state. This expanded influence has opened up even more opportunities for training, innovation, and collaboration.
We are proud to be a part of the green building history in the state of Colorado. Not only that, we are thankful for the partnership, friendship, and resource that the CGBC and other sustainably-focused organizations have been to our firm. Please contact our office if you are interested in learning more about how your next home design, remodel, or commercial building project can incorporate sustainable building practices as well as smart architectural design!
