Kailua businessman Michael Fairall, founder of Mokulua High Performance Builder, has been a longtime proponent for green and sustainable design and construction.

For his efforts, he recently was named the 2012 Certified Green Professional of the Year by the National Association of Home Builders.

He was scheduled to be recognized at the Designation Achievement Reception at the 2013 International Builders’ Show Jan. 21 in Las Vegas along with other leading professionals.

Fairall’s business focuses on increased energy efficiency, improved air quality, appropriate allocation of resources and consumer education.

In addition to utilizing these principles in his own company, Fairall also advocates for sustainable construction practices and legislation at the state and national levels.

Fairall, who is a Kailua resident, also represents the state as a member of the National Association of Home Builders Green Building and Energy Subcommittee.

“Mike Fairall understands that it’s every member’s responsibility to promote professionalism in the industry, and that one of the best ways to demonstrate that professionalism is to stay on top of educational opportunities, understand best practices and pay attention to design trends,” said Kimberly Chambers, chairwoman of the Green Building Designations Board of Governors and a builder from Montana.

“I congratulate Mike on this well-deserved honor.”
