One of our MCHC employees was just officially awarded a new acronym ... CGP. There are a lot of 3-letter designations floating around the building industry these days - CGP, SFI, CGD, FSC, LOL (oh wait...not that one) The CGP however, actually holds some weight in our industry and stands for Certified Green Professional™ and it's achieved through the NAHB (4-letters this time).
The National Association of Home Builders’ Certified Green Professional™ designation recognizes builders, remodelers and other industry professionals who incorporate green building principles into homes— without driving up the cost of construction. Classwork leading to the designation provides a solid background in green building methods, as well as the tools to reach consumers, from the organization leading the charge to provide market-driven green building solutions to the home building industry.
So our friend and CSS Manager (Contractor Special Services), Andy Shakliks, took the time to learn - which in turn will help our customers. If you're a builder, remodeler, or a homeowner in need of green building advice - shoot Andy an email at AShakliks@midcape.net or give him a buzz at 508-398-6071 x 4992 ... he'll be happy to help. Andy has a degree in Architectural Engineering and has been working in the building materials industry since 1993.
PS: that last one is Talk To You Later ...
