Nominations are open for the 7th Annual BPN Sustainability Awards, which are designed to encourage and reward Australia’s best practice in sustainable building and architecture design.
The awards want designers, architects and buildings to push the boundaries of innovation by rewarding this initiative.
The 10 entry categories are Small Commercial, Large Commercial, Office Fitout, Single Dwelling (New), Best of the Best, Landscape Design, Innovation of the Year, Multi Density Residential, Public Building and Urban Design, and Single Dwelling (Alterations and Additions).
The awards’ judges are looking for services or products that help sustainable built environments, sustainable design, and preservation and rehabilitation of land among other criteria.
Past winners have been rewarded for initiatives including collaborative designs, environmental and social sustainability, integrating nature into design, energy efficiency, passive design and solar shading.
Building Products News (BPN) Magazine, a respected industry journal since 1967, started the awards, with interest continuing to grow each year, alongside the recognition that good building design is vital to environmental sustainability, energy efficiency and in reducing our carbon footprint.
The ceremony will be held in Sydney on Thursday, November 7 with nominations closing on August 30.
