Prescott Green Builders Personnel

Kurt Holmes – Owner & Operations Manager

    As the Owner and Operations Manager, Kurt is the client’s primary contact for all of the design, bidding, and construction phases. Kurt has experience and up-to-date training achieved, in part, through these previous local employers:

    • Specialist in instructing students in green-building skills and coordinating day-to-day construction activities on award-winning homes built as a part of the Yavapai College Residential Building Technology Program (2000-2005)
    • Partner in Shelter from the Storm, general contractor for constructing green custom homes in the Prescott area (2000 – 2005)

Prescott Green Builders management and jobsite personnel routinely receive refresher training (e.g., APS Energy Star Homes Program) in construction techniques that enhance a home’s performance. Thus, our clients can be assured that their home is being built to performance standards that equate to energy savings, durability, comfort, and a healthy indoor environment.

Our Connection to Yavapai College

Prescott Green Builders professional management has deep roots in the award-winning Yavapai College Residential Building Technology (RBT) Program. This connection includes having completed the RBT degree program courses and employment in association with constructing the RBT “College Houses” program. The RBT program has been very influential in the Prescott area in advancing home-performance certifications and instructing construction professionals as well as the community in general in the elements in what is considered green building. The philosophy of the RBT program, (i.e., high-performance construction resulting from merging building science with green building), has also been very influential on the Prescott Green Builders approach to construction.

Tony Grahame, former director (1996-2010) of the YC RBT program and construction business partner with Kurt Holmes, is an exclusive consultant to Prescott Green Builders:
