Leading the Way in Green Home Construction
At McFall Builders, we pride ourselves on being one of Gainesville’s leading green home building contractors.
A huge part of that success is being committed to providing high quality, environmentally friendly, and sustainable homes for our community. View our previous custom-built green homes in our portfolio.
Florida Green Building Coalition Builder
McFall Builders is a Florida Green Building Coalition (FGBC) builder. The FGBC is a non-profit Florida corporation dedicated to improving the building environment. In addition to following green building standards, all of our Florida green-built homes are constructed to meet Energy Star standards and beyond.
FGBC ‘s mission is to provide the state with green building programs that will benefit the environment, the economy, and society as well. FGBC is the leader in establishing Florida-specific certification standards for the construction industry.
UF-IFAS Extension Rating
We also partner with the University of Florida’s IFAS Extension for certification on all of our green-built homes. UF-IFAS sets standards for homes so they can withstand Florida’s harsh and unpredictable weather conditions. They also consider sustainable construction practices that reduce environmental impact. All of our green homes undergo UF-IFAS inspections.
Green Local Government Certification
McFall Builders is also proud to have the Green Local Government Certification. This program is currently the only one of its kind in the country. It provides communities a step-by-step toolkit for developing and implementing sustainability plans that encourage the adoption of environmentally friendly practices across all government functions.
