School Construction

NCBPA is deeply interested in improving the minimum energy efficiency, green building and high performance construction requirements of new North Carolina K-12 and institutions, as well as for renovations of existing schools.

NCBPA’s School Construction Initiatives

NCBPA is taking the lead in developing and enabling legislation that supports energy efficient new construction schools.  Our goals include supporting certification and verification programs like Passive House, ENERGY STAR, LEED and others.
