The CIBSE Building Performance Awards, now in their 13th year, recognise the people, products and projects that demonstrate engineering excellence in the built environment. 

They are the only industry Awards that focus on actual, measured performance outcomes, and not just design intent or performance specifications. Entries are open to any organisation, both within the UK and internationally, that is responsible for the design, commissioning, construction, installation and operation of low energy buildings and the manufacturers whose products enable efficient energy consumption.
