HomeInside FCNewsCall for entries for 2014 NAHBGreen Awards

Sept. 16/23 2013; Volume 27/number 11

The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) is now accepting submissions for its 2014 NAHBGreen Awards. Each year, NAHB recognizes individuals, companies and organizations for excellence in residential green design and construction practices, and for green building programs and advocacy efforts. The awards will be presented on Feb. 5, 2014, during an event held in conjunction with the International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas.

“In recent years, there has been a surge of interest in green building, and the industry has responded by designing and constructing high-performance homes that reflect not only green and energy efficient principles, but also innovative design,” said NAHB chairman Rick Judson, a home builder from Charlotte, N.C. “Each year, NAHB recognizes the very best work in this sector in its NAHBGreen Awards.”

In an effort to create a more streamlined submission process and make it easier and quicker for applicants to apply, the applications for all Project of the Year categories have been revised and can be submitted online. The awards are open to both NAHB members and non-NAHB members. To be eligible for the Green Project of the Year categories, projects must have been started no earlier than January 2010 and substantially completed by December 2013.

Categories include: Project of the Year—Single Family, Project of the Year—Multifamily, Project of the Year—Remodel, Project of the Year—Green Site Development, and Advocate of the Year.

All homes and developments must be scored to either the 2008 or 2012 ICC-700 National Green Building Standard to ensure fair comparisons for judging purposes. This can be done by downloading the scoring spreadsheets at homeinnovation.com/greenscoring.

All entries must be received by Oct. 15. Application fees are $250 for Project of the Year categories and $150 for the Advocate of the Year award.
