Witness the winners as they accept their awards, hear them highlight their projects and congratulate them on their success.
The Beyond Green™ High-Performance Building and Community Awards program highlights those initiatives that shape, inform and catalyze the high-performance planning, design, construction and operations processes.
The 2015 Awards are as follows:
- The Honor Award in Category A: High-Performance Buildings will go to the United Nations Headquarters in New York, New York for its sustainable renovation project.
- The Award of Merit in Category A: High-Performance Buildings will go to the Center for Sustainable Landscapes at the Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
- The Award of Merit in Category C: High-Performance Initiatives will go to the Efficient Homes Initiative of the Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance and its utility partners.
The Beyond Green™ Awards recognize buildings, initiatives and innovations that best exemplify the eight design objectives of a high-performance building: sustainability, accessibility, aesthetics, cost-effectiveness, functionality, productivity, historical sensitivity, and safety and security. Resilience falls within the ‘safety and security’ attribute, which promotes designing and constructing buildings that resist natural and man-made hazards.
Don’t miss the opportunity to hear from the award winners as they talk about their distinguished projects and congratulate them on their recognition. Register for the Beyond Green™ Awards Luncheon today! (Select tickets 2016-3 and 2016-3D)
