Posted by Stephanie Broad | January 27, 2016 | Sustainability

Drawn from highest scoring buildings last year under the BREEAM schemes for assessing building sustainability, the shortlists for the awards include ground-breaking developments from the UK, France, Sweden, Russia, the Netherlands, Spain, Belgium, the Czech Republic and Romania.  The awards ceremony takes place on 8 March in London.

Director of BREEAM, Gavin Dunn, said: ‘This year we are celebrating 25 years of BREEAM so it’s great to see such a fantastic variety of innovative and inspirational buildings that demonstrate just how far developers and architects how come on the sustainability journey in that time. We look forward to celebrating the achievements of all the shortlisted teams at theawards dinner on 8th March.”

The shortlists are derived from the top five scoring buildings in each category of BREEAM (offices, retail, education, industrial, residential and mixed use). There are awards for new construction in all categories, and for refurbishment and fit-out and in-use in the office and retail categories. The selected project teams are then invited to submit a case study to the panel of independent industry judges who make the final decision on who wins the award.

The judging panel for 2016 features architect Bill Gething, UKGBC’s policy advisor Louise Sutherland, Claudine Blamey Head of Sustainability at The Crown Estate, Sarah Richardson Editor of Building magazine, John Cole of the Home Office and BREEAM’s Technical Director Alan Yates.
