Green Building is Now the Law in Dallas

Read the full story from ENN.

Dallas has now accepted the first building permit applications under its green building ordinance. Dallas is one of the first major cities in the nation to implement comprehensive mandatory green building standards for both all new residential and commercial construction.


  1. I’m in shock that this is the first I’m hearing about this. As good of a thing that I think it is it still amazes me that it has been mandatory to build green. I know modular homes are growing nationwide and are considered to be a type of green building. I wonder if Dallas residents will now purchase more factory assembled homes like this and what the exact standards are to be classified as green building.
