|Building Innovation 2015 Conference & Expo Program|
Aligning perfectly with the theme of Building Innovation 2015, the Sustainable Buildings Industry Council (SBIC) has incorporated resilience into its 2014 Beyond Green™ High-Performance Building and Community Awards. The awards program highlights those initiatives that shape, inform and catalyze the high-performance planning, design, construction and operations processes. This year, for the first time, buildings and communities can be recognized for their contributions to building and community level resilience.
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.
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.
Be there to see the winners of the 2014 Beyond Green™ High-Performance Building & Community Awards present their projects and receive their awards during the Beyond Green™ Awards Luncheon. During this awards presentation, winners will share their innovative solutions and highlight the challenges and opportunities they faced while delivering high-performance buildings.
