Each month the Education Committee highlights a different designation and an outstanding member who is committed to continuing their education and promoting their designation.
Remodeler Kevin Key of Key Residential, Ltd. was selected as the November Master Certified Green Builder. A Master CGP designation is the most advanced green designation a builder can obtain through the National Association of Home Builders. Graduates must have at least 5 years of green building experience, holding a Certified Green Professional designation, and have built or remodeled at least three dwellings that have been certified to the International Code Council 700 National Green Building Standard. They also must sign and adhere to the NAHB Master CGP code of ethics.
Kevin decided to become a MCGP because he and his company know that being environmentally conscious is an important, growing movement in our business region. Green standards are dealt with daily with building code regulations and inspections, and are often significant parts of their clients’ personal values.
Kevin Key has over 25 years of experience in the remodeling industry. Kevin began construction work in Lubbock, then moved to the Dallas area, where he has been involved in the remodeling industry for the past 18 years. To fully embrace opportunities to build custom homes for past remodeling clients, he established Key Residential, Ltd. in the fall of 2010. Previously, Kevin was an owner partner of Key Renovations, opened in January 2004, and project manager for a Dallas remodeling company. Kevin holds numerous building accreditations including Certified Graduate Builder, Certified Graduate Remodeler, Certified Aging-In-Place Specialist and Master Certified Green Professional. Kevin was also named the Dallas Builders Association’s Remodeler of the Year for 2017.
Key Residential, Ltd. markets Kevin’s designation by listing it on the company website. They link the NAHB National Green Building Program website to their membership page so clients can conveniently read more about the affiliation and the Green Building Program itself. He believes the designation further increases Key Residentials credibility as a building company.
Kevin states, “Our Master Certified Green Professional designation increases our remodeling versatility and communicates that we are engaged in current home design trends, particularly the environmental movement that becomes more prevalent each year. It shows that we can not only renovate your space to look great, but we are also knowledgeable about environmentally beneficial elements that can be added to your home during your renovation project.”
