Design Experts

The TightLines Designs staff is passionate about sustainable design, practices and education.  

TightLines Principal David Maurer and Director of Business Development Lindsay Locke are both Accredited Professionals through the  US Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED AP) program, which is an internationally-recognized green building certification and standard program.  Team members regularly present on a number of sustainability topics and have first-hand experience in a variety of green home certification processes, including ENERGY STAR, North Carolina HealthyBuilt Homes, and Advanced Energy's SystemVision program.  Additionally, David frequently lectures on the practice of conservation land planning, which the TightLines team regulary incorporates into its project designs. 

The TightLines staff works closely with Advanced Energy, a non-profit organization that focuses on energy efficiency to develop green construction details that meet strict ENERGY STAR requirements.  These details are provided as part of the set for all TightLines designs.  Staff members have also completed SystemVision trainings, which focus on building science and applied construction techniques that improve home energy efficiency and indoor air quality.
