Recognize Excellence in High-Performing, Resilient Buildings and Communities

Nominate One for a Beyond Green™ Award

Jun 29, 2015 -- Now is the time to highlight those buildings, initiatives and innovations that shape, inform and catalyze the high-performance planning, design, construction and operations processes. Today, the National Institute of Building Sciences Sustainable Buildings Industry Council (SBIC) issued the Call for Entries for its 2015 Beyond Green™ High-Performance Building and Community Awards. The Beyond Green™ Awards are a great way to recognize projects and activities that contribute to making high-performing, resilient buildings and communities.

The Beyond Green™ Awards recognize those projects and activities 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.

Award categories include: High Performance Buildings; High-Performance Attributes and Systems; High-Performance Initiatives; and Innovations for High-Performance Buildings and Communities; as well as the Greg Franta Memorial Award for an individual’s outstanding contributions to high-performance, sustainable building design and construction.

Once selected, the winners of the Beyond Green™ High-Performance Building & Community Awards will be invited to present their projects and receive their awards at a special Beyond Green™ Awards Luncheon, to be held during Building Innovation 2016: The National Institute of Building Sciences Fourth Annual Conference and Expo, the week of January 11-15, 2016, in Washington, D.C. The awards presentation gives winners an opportunity to share their project results directly with leaders in the building community, highlighting the challenges and opportunities they faced while supporting delivery of high-performance buildings and communities.

Winning projects will be published 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.

The deadline to apply for the 2015 Beyond Green™ Awards is Friday, September 4, 2015, at 5:00 p.m. ET. Take this opportunity to recognize a deserving high-performance project, particularly one that addresses resilience. The application process is now available online. Submit an entry today!
