By USGBCMA Communications, More Green Buildings!
See if your building has what it takes! Every year at our Green Building Showcase, we choose a Green Building of the Year (GBOTY), the building that best exemplifies the Chapter’s passion for sustainable design and stands out against its competitors.
If you've recently worked on a project that fits the bill, enter the contest now! Make sure it fits the following requirements:
- Met a third-party green building recognition or standard (LEED, LBC, Energy Star, etc)
- Whole building, not components or portions of a building
- Complete and have a certificate of occupancy by 9/21/17
- Located in Massachusetts
It costs $250 to enter, and all entrants must have a display board for judges to see. Entries are due by September 8th, 2016.
Judges will be on the lookout for a standout project. Previous winners have gone above and beyond expectations: their innovative projects helped pave the way to a more sustainable future.
For inspiration, check out last year's winner! The Green Engineer Inc. won GBOTY 2015 for their project, Summer Star Sanctuary. Read about it on our blog!
