This year’s competition will include two specific categories for Sustainability for projects in the UK and International.

This category will judge projects on the fabric performance, and innovative approaches to the environmental design whilst promoting the health and well-being of occupants.

This is open to both new-build and refurbishment projects.

For international projects, we would be especially interested in to how the façade design and materiality has responded to the local climate.
