Spotlight a Cutting-Edge Project that Goes Beyond Green™

July 12, 2017 - Across the United States, designers, builders, owners, government agencies, manufacturers and others are going beyond the status quo to achieve high-performing, resilient buildings and communities. Now is the time to show off advancements and gain recognition for those buildings, initiatives and innovations that are influencing, informing and inspiring the high-performance planning, design, construction and operations processes. Enter those cutting-edge projects and activities for a chance to win a National Institute of Building Sciences  2017 Beyond Green™ High-Performance Building and Community Award.

The Beyond Green™ Awards distinguish those projects and activities that best demonstrate the eight high-performance attributes: sustainability, accessibility, aesthetics, cost effectiveness, functionality, productivity, historical sensitivity, and safety and security (resilience). The nomination categories include: High-Performance Buildings; High-Performance Attributes and Systems; High-Performance Initiatives; and Innovations for High-Performance Buildings and Communities.

 

The Beyond Green™ Awards jury will review all of the entries received by the  October 31, 2017, deadline, and make their final selections. The Beyond Green™ High-Performance Building & Community Award winners will be invited to present their projects and receive their awards at a special Beyond Green™ Awards Luncheon, to be held during  Building Innovation 2018: The National Institute of Building Sciences Fifth Annual Conference and Expo, the week of January 8-11, 2018, in Washington, D.C. At the awards presentation, winners will have an opportunity to share their project results directly with leaders from across the building industry, and highlight the challenges and opportunities they faced on their high-performance projects.

The winning selections will appear as case studies on the  WBDG Whole Building Design Guide® website. Additional recognition will include an announcement in the Institute’s newsletter, a plaque and potential inclusion in future Institute technical guidelines and publications.
