GreenPoint Rated (GPR) is a program of Build It Green, a professional non-profit membership organization whose mission is to promote healthy, energy and resource efficient buildings. The recommended measures and performance benchmarks in the GPR standards address climate and market conditions and these standards are recognized by third party sources.
Ratings are performed by a certified GreenPoint Rater, an independent professional who is trained and certified by Build It Green. Partner Energy’s team includes experienced GreenPoint Raters.
The rating process is a non-invasive physical examination of building systems, structures, materials and components to assess energy and water efficiency, indoor air quality, resource efficiency of materials and construction methods, and construction quality. The rater will generally engage in at least four of the five following activities during the course of project design and construction:
- Plan check;
- Rough inspection;
- Final inspection;
- Supporting documentation review; and/or,
- Performance testing.
