Demonstrating outstanding contribution to improving the sustainability of the built environment including in terms of carbon emissions, energy consumption, reduced waste or resilience to climate change.
The Sustainability Award recognises those projects that are not only future-proof, but are working to ensure the quality of that future through innovative practices that reduce emissions and a building’s overall impact on the environment.
Previous winners have included South West College for their project CREST: Centre for Renewable Energy and Sustainable Technologies (2017 winners). CREST continues to provide valuable insights to different actors around the built environment sector on how best to ensure their projects are sustainable and to limit emissions.
On receiving the award, CREST’s Co-ordinator Barry McCarron said:
‘Our ethos at CREST is to create a sustainable technology research facility that can benefit others by showcasing the technologies that are integrated with an energy efficient building. The Centre’s combination of credentials, integrated with the appropriate renewable technology makes this project a shining example of sustainable development.’
If your project makes a significant contribution to the sustainability of the built environment, be sure to nominate it before the deadline on 31st May 2019.
