The Imery Group’s construction division is 100% committed to building Georgia green homes and facilities that are sensitive to the environment. We utilize the most respected high energy performance and Georgia green home building programs, including ENERGY STAR, the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED for Home and Southface’s EarthCraft House to accomplish our goal of becoming the go-to green home builder in Georgia.
Green home building in Georgia doesn’t require sacrifices in comfort or cost. In fact, the EarthCraft House program developed by the green home building experts at Atlanta’s very own Southface Energy Institute results in one of the most high performance, durable and resource-efficient homes you can buy.
EarthCraft House is a green home building program that serves as a blueprint for healthier, more comfortable homes that reduce utility bills and protect the environment. Imery Group owner and Georgia green home builder Luis Imery is a pioneer in the field, having built the first two EarthCraft Houses to achieve the platinum level certification in Athens, Georgia.
Imery Group also is one of the few green home builders in Georgia offering new homes that have earned the ENERGY STAR label. Green home building with ENERGY STAR qualifications results in new homes that are substantially more energy efficient than homes built to minimum code requirements. Imery Group’s ENERGY STAR qualified new homes are independently verified by a third-party home energy rater to ensure they meet ENERGY STAR energy efficiency guidelines for Georgia green home building. These homes are better for the environment and better for you.
Some of the features we include in Georgia green home building include:

Plus, green home building will be more functional, attractive and eco-friendly than standard construction.
