Did you work on a truly exemplary green single- or multi-family home in 2016? Are you a developer or homebuilder who has gone above and beyond with LEED?
If so, the U.S. Green Building Council wants to turn the spotlight on that work.
The LEED Homes Awards recognize architects, developers, home builders and projects that have demonstrated leadership in the residential building marketplace.
There are several award categories:
- Outstanding Commitment to LEED
- Outstanding Affordable Project
- Outstanding Affordable Developer
- Project of the Year/Outstanding Innovative Project
- Outstanding Multi-Family Project
- Outstanding Multi-Family Developer
- Outstanding Single-Family Project
The awards also recognize the LEED Homes Power Builders, which the USGBC developed to honor an elite group of developers and builders who have exhibited an outstanding commitment to LEED and the green building movement within the residential sector.
To be considered as a Power Builder, developers and builders must have achieved LEED certification for 90 percent of their homes/unit count built in 2016. Homes at any LEED certification level — certified, silver, gold or platinum — are eligible for consideration.
To be eligible, the project needs to have been certified between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2016; the nominations deadline is June 19.
