ATLANTA — The GREENGUARD Environmental Institute (GEI) recently unveiled its newly redesigned Web site, which offers builders and owners a blueprint for healthier structures that can safeguard against interior moisture and mold growth while minimizing the financial risk associated with mold damage, according to GEI.

“Taking the appropriate steps to prevent mold growth before it occurs is critical for builders and owners — from both a health and a financial perspective,” said Henning Bloech, executive director of GEI. “GREENGUARD’s new and improved Web site — and, in particular, its Builders and Owners section — makes understanding and executing those steps easier than ever.”

In addition to providing information on mold, moisture and indoor air quality, GEI’s new Web site offers an enhanced GREENGUARD Product Guide, which helps builders find low-emitting building products and materials that can earn them sustainable credits. The site also offers increased visibility of GREENGUARD Building Construction Certified and registered buildings — as well as their owners, developers and general contractors — by showcasing them in the Find Certified and Registered Buildings section. Other new Web features and upgrades include a complete site redesign, improved site navigability and a comprehensive FAQ section, GEI adds.
