Building Performance Awards launch with renewed emphasis for 2020
Posted: 05 June 2019
Entries are now invited for the 2020 CIBSE Building Performance Awards.
The Awards showcase the highest achievements in building performance across the construction and property industry. These are the only awards in the built environment sector that are judged on actual, in-use performance rather than projections or designed performance.
The 2020 Awards focus on all aspects of a project, product or innovation, looking for the delivery of safe, healthy, functional and sustainable buildings which operate efficiently and meet users needs.
Entry to the awards is free, with streamlined entry forms for 2020 to make it easier to enter.
Judges for the Project of the Year categories will look for evidence on the overall performance of the building in operation.
For the first time, the Product and Innovation category will include an Award to recognise new products and innovations that make a significant contribution to the wellbeing or thermal comfort elements of building performance. This can include solutions in the areas of lighting, acoustics, air quality and renewables for wellbeing, and solutions covering heating, ventilation, cooling and humidification for thermal comfort.
The deadline for entries is Friday 13 September 2019.
