NGBS - remodel

The NGBS is designed to work with remodeling projects in the following ways: 1. If the remodeling project involves 75 percent or more of the conditioned floor area, than this is considered a gut rehab and follows the program structure for new homes. 2. If the remodeling project is less than 75 percent of the home’s conditioned floor area and the home was built prior to 1980, then the remodeling project can follow the “Remodel Path,” meaning a measured percentage of improvements in energy and water efficiency and compliance with a list of 28 mandatory practices. 3. If the remodeling project is less than 75 percent of the home’s conditioned floor area and the home was built during or after 1980, then the project must follow the “Green Building Path,” which uses the new home point system with notes for line items that differ for remodeling projects.
