BUILD Magazine Announces the 2018 Sustainable Building Award Winners
United Kingdom, 2018 – BUILD Magazine has announced winners of the 2018 Sustainable Building Awards. The 2018 Sustainable Building Awards aim is to reward the work done in the milieu of green building. From the pioneers to the rising stars, we commend the people who work tirelessly to ensure the global community decreases its collective carbon footprint.
Catching society unaware, the buildings in which we work, live and play were, and in some cases still are, doing long-term damage to the environment. Since the days of the global energy crisis in the 1960s – 70s, a movement to provide ecologically aware buildings with long term solutions has existed. Yet it has only been recently that major cities from across the world are passing laws and commissioning green buildings, as leaders realise the need for reduction in carbon footprints.
Discussing the awards, Sam Jordan-Turner, Awards Coordinator commented: “Due in part to incredible advancements in technology, in addition to the sheer hard work, Sustainable Building has transformed into a billion-dollar industry which is making a difference in daily and future living, and it is our privilege here at BUILD to be able to share the very best of the best. Congratulations to all of my winners, your success was well deserved.”
