This week sees LafargeHolcim’s fifth international sustainable construction awards open for submissions. The awards, administered by the LafargeHolcim Foundation, will be accepting entrants until 21 March 2017.
The competition’s main category is open to architects, planners, engineers, students of related disciplines, project owners, builders and construction firms that showcase sustainable responses to technological, environmental, socioeconomic and cultural issues within contemporary building and construction.
Projects must have reached an advanced stage of design, have a high probability of execution and may not have started construction before 4 July 2016.
Prizes will initially be awarded regionally, with the results announced from September 2017. The winners and runners-up from the regional awards will be considered by a global panel, which will choose an overall winner in mid-2018.
