What is the Green Building Code?
The Green Building Code provides a roadmap for builders and developers interested in incorporating sustainable, energy efficient components into their buildings beyond the minimum requirements of the current code. The city adopted the International Green Construction Code (IGCC) to provide an alternative, more affordable option for projects wanting to be designed and verified as green.
IGCC and LEED
Whether it's the IGCC or LEED Platinum, there are several options for developments to be considered a green building by the City of Boise.
