GREEN BUILDING

This category is defined as a structure that has a quantifiable minimal impact on the environment and refers to both a structure and its processes that are environmentally responsible and resource-efficient throughout a building’s lifecycle: from design, construction, operation, maintenance and even renovation, if need be.

SMART BUILDING (PROJECT)

A smart building is defined as one that uses automated processes to control the building’s operations including heating, ventilation, air conditioning, lighting, security and other systems. A smart building improves the asset sustainability and performance by reducing energy use and optimising how its space is used, which in turn minimises the overall environmental impact of structure.

About

For over a decade we’ve held the nation’s most respected design awards program devoted to sustainable building. We reward those who share our desire to curtail and reverse the ecological footprint of our built environment. We celebrate those who design, manufacture and construct green buildings of all sizes and purposes. And those who continually hold the line against compromise to do so.
Because we believe sustainability should be the primary requirement for all building design and the major measure of architectural achievement.

Partners

We’re partnering with like-minded brands who share our vision for change. Together we’re supporting the ongoing progress of the green building movement in our great nation.
