In response to the popularity of the building categories in the last awards, four new categories have been introduced. They are for commercial/industrial, retail, leisure, public-use and residential buildings.
Hywel Davies comments, ‘By opening up thee new categories, we are responding to a growing recognition of building performance and building-performance innovation in different sectors. It’s a very positive sign that performance is being taken seriously across a whole range of industries, and it give the judging panel a great challenge trying to pick a winner.
The Building Performance Awards will be presented at an event in London on 24 February 2016. You can see the shortlist and book for the event on CIBSE’s web site.
