NYS green building standards moving ahead

New York has joined the growing ranks of state and local governments in the U.S. to require that new state buildings and major renovations of existing structures conform to green building principles.  New York Governor David A. Paterson’s signature on the State Green Building Construction Act means that as of August 27, 2010, construction of new state buildings and overhauls of existing ones must meet new guidelines which are being developed and implemented by the New York State Office of General Services.
