Grubb Properties earns first ever NGBS Silver Certificate
(CHAPEL HILL, N.C.) March 23, 2021 – Grubb Properties is honored to be recognized by The National Green Building Standard (NGBS) with a Silver Certificate for its commitment to creating sustainable communities. Link Apartments® Linden in Chapel Hill is Grubb Properties’ first community to earn the NGBS Silver Certificate. Only five multifamily communities in Chapel Hill have earned any level of NGBS designation.
NGBS is the only green building rating system for homes and apartments approved by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) as an American National Standard. NGBS provides a blueprint for builders to follow for the design and construction of new and renovated single-family homes and multifamily apartment buildings. There are four certification levels – Bronze, Silver, Gold and Emerald – that are graded on six levels: energy efficiency, water efficiency, resource efficiency, lot development, operation and maintenance, and indoor environmental quality.
“This is tremendous honor for Grubb Properties, the Glen Lennox neighborhood and the Chapel Hill community,” said Colin Walker, Sustainability Manager with Grubb Properties. “It’s been a long journey to our first silver-level project, thanks to years of pushing innovation in the sustainable design of our Link Apartments® communities. This is only the first of many NGBS silver projects and I’m excited for us to continue to raise the bar in the coming years.”
Grubb Properties’ other Link Apartments® communities have earned the NGBS Bronze certification. The company is committed to sustainability practices and completed its first full assessment under the Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark in 2020.
Link Apartments® Linden is a new, modern building offering contemporary, efficient and sustainable studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom apartment homes featuring an incredible amenity network and a fun, healthy lifestyle located in the Glen Lennox neighborhood.
