EarthCraft Virginia is now Viridiant.

Join us as we build something new.

After more than a decade advocating for the protection of our living environments, inside and out, EarthCraft Virginia is transforming to serve an even broader perspective. We’re embarking on our biggest building project yet, guided by the science of sustainability. Under the new name Viridiant Audio_Icon, we’re expanding our efforts in education, consultation and certification. As a result, we’ll show more clearly than ever before how following the latest building science can set a path for businesses and homeowners to create structures that are more affordable, more livable and more durable. We’ll continue to serve hundreds of professionals and thousands of homeowners with the EarthCraft family of programs, just as we’ve done since 2006, but as Viridiant, our goal is to do even more, focusing on our Three Pillars of Sustainability.
