Frankel Building Group is one of the most innovative green home builders in the greater Houston area. As Frankel Building Group actually builds by LEED guidelines (Leadership in Energy and Environment Design) which is an internationally acknowledged certification program established by the U.S. Green Building Council that issues third party authentication of a building's green design, construction and operation.

"Your builder isn't just a contractor with a pencil in his ear, he needs to be like your doctor or accountant, a professional. You are going to him for expertise so that you have a healthy, excellent home that is sustainable long term."
