Description: Build San Antonio Green (BSAG) is San Antonio’s residential Green Building Program, developed specifically for San Antonio. In official partnership of several government and stakeholder organizations, the program operates as a fully autonomous non-profit organization. Similar to other green building programs, there are multiple levels of certification, based on conventional construction trends and the requirements of municipal building code. As the organization deals exclusively with residential construction in the San Antonio area, checklists include numerous hyper-local and site specific criteria. A diverse range of clients includes design/build architecture firms to large-scale home builders, including KB Homes. The program seems readily adaptable to other markets, and one would hope that a similarly blended global and local building code will be adopted in major urban areas throughout the United States.
