Winners of the 2013 Building Performance Awards

CIBSE announces British Land as Carbon Champion of the Year and winners of the 2013 Building Performance Awards.

CIBSE is delighted to congratulate all of the winners of the 2013 Building Performance Awards which were announced at the Awards ceremony on 5th February 2013 at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London.

CIBSE Building Performance Awards Winners 2013

Building performance has taken on an increased significance as it focuses on enabling efficient energy consumption within the built environment. CIBSE President, David Fisk, said: "Since our buildings use nearly half our energy, this should be a matter of national priority. The projects and products showcased tonight show us what can be achieved and raise the bar of best practice for all of us in the built environment."

On Monday (4th February 2013), Prime Minister David Cameron spoke at the launch of the Government's Energy Efficiency Mission at the Royal Society in London.   He underlined the Government's commitment to energy efficiency and said that only the greenest and most energy efficient countries would win the global race. He commented: "To those who say we just cannot afford to prioritise green energy right now, my view is we can't afford not to."

As Carbon Champion of the Year, the Judges commented that British Land is an excellent example of how good building performance supports good commercial performance.   Since 2009, British Land has achieved energy cost savings for its occupiers of £1.6m.

Justin Snoxall, Head of the Business Group at British Land, said on receiving the prestigious award: "We are delighted to be Carbon Champion of the Year and for a second year running be awarded the Client Energy Management award in recognition of our work. Our commitment to energy management is stronger than ever and we believe that green buildings do add value and reduce the obsolescence of our assets in the longer term."
