HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. (Jan. 12, 2011) — In keeping with the latest green building trends, BSH Home Appliances, manufacturer of Bosch, Thermador and Gaggenau, announced the certification of its entire builder sales team as National Association of Home Builders’ (NAHB) Green Building Professionals. The designation recognizes the BSH Builder Sales Team for their understanding of green building principles and ability to offer builders an enhanced level of support in developing residential projects that meet NAHB National Green Building standards.
The BSH builder sales team includes Thomas Linton, Joey Vazquez, Ric Coggins, Rick Runge, Bruce Ellenson, Dan Collins and John McDonough.
As Green Building Professionals, the sales managers will offer builder insights and recommendations to maximize the efficiency of their residential projects and achieve National Green Building Certification — without driving up the cost of construction. National Green Building Certification delivers the assurance that projects meet NAHB Model Green Home Building Guidelines, and truly are green.
“Our involvement with the builder community represents one of BSH’s most important and valued relationships,” said Zach Elkin, director, Builders, Contractors and Designers Group, BSH Home Appliances. “We’re dedicated to providing the community new ways to build efficiently and distinguish their next projects. As Green Building Professionals, the BSH sales team, consisting of the Bosch, Thermador, and Gaggenau teams, is a valuable builder resource with an in-depth understanding of sustainable residential building.”
Earning the Green Building Professional designation requires the completion of NAHB University of Housing courses that provide a solid background of green building methods. In addition, continuing education courses are required to maintain the designation.
