The inaugural Greenbuild awards will recognise excellence in sustainable buildings, with a particular focus on those projects that can illustrate an understanding of the importance of building performance in use.
The building sector categories – domestic newbuild, domestic refurb, education buildings, leisure buildings and workplace buildings – are judged by Green Gauge’s Managing Director Liz Reason, Kerry Mashford from the Technology Strategy Board and Paul Ruyssevelt from Ruyssevelt Consulting. After weeks of deliberation, the judges have chosen the finalists, with the winners to be announced at a celebratory dinner on 9th May at Manchester’s Museum of Science and Industry. Judge Liz Reason commented: “The importance of monitoring and evaluating the energy performance of our buildings is at last being understood and we can see the real benefits from these competition entries – fantastic learning of what works and what doesn’t – to make subsequent projects so much better for others in the industry. Bring it on!”
