Sustainable Atlanta

Keep up with the city’s plans for change here –

The plan is to “Amend Atlanta’s building code so that it responds to advances in building technology to protect the health, safety, and welfare of Atlantans and to safeguard Atlanta’s long term comprehensive competitiveness.”

What are the requirements of the Ordinance?

The Sustainable Building Draft Ordinance requires that all projects covered by the new ordinance (Commercial and Mid to High-Rise Residential) comply with one of four compliance paths in order to receive a permit for construction and a certificate of occupancy.

The four paths include:

  • Atlanta Sustainable Building Standards
  • LEED 2009 Green Building Design and Construction;
  • Green Globes rating of at least one globes;
  • EarthCraft certification at Tier 1;
