WASHINGTON - The Sustainable Buildings Industry Council (SBIC), along with multiple sponsors including CertainTeed, announced the winners of the Beyond Green™ 2007 High Performance Building Awards Program. The three first-place winners presented their projects at the National Building Museum in Washington in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Energy’s Building for the 21st Century monthly lecture series. An awards ceremony and reception followed.

This year, the SBIC presented awards in two categories: High-Performance Buildings and High-Performance Initiatives. The Beyond Green™ awards recognize initiatives that shape and catalyze the high-performance building market, as well as the real-world application of high-performance design and construction practices.

Applicants were required to demonstrate the successful application of the whole-building approach and show how they maintained the proper balance of eight design objectives that make up a high-performance building: accessibility, aesthetics, cost effectiveness, functionality, historicity, productivity, safety and security, and sustainability. All building design professionals, both SBIC members and nonmembers, were eligible to compete.

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory - The Molecular Foundry SmithGroup Inc., took first place in the High-Performance Buildings category. The High-Performance Building: Perspectives and Practice, Rocky Mountain Institute, Educational Initiative; and The Athena® EcoCalculator for Assemblies, Athena Institute, Innovative Initiative, both took first place in the High-Performance Initiative category.
