For the 7th year in a row, the Construction21 network is launching its Green Solutions Awards!
For the 7th year in a row, the Construction21 network is launching its Green Solutions Awards. The kick-off is given on March 14th at MIPIM, on the BNP Paribas Real Estate booth, sponsor of the competition. This contest is the concrete embodiment of all statements on ecological transition: it promotes already existing solutions, integrated in building, districts and infrastructures, which, if they are replicated on a broad scale, have a real capacity to fight against climate change.
After the kick off at MIPIM, the world’s leading property market that celebrates the 30th edition this year with the theme ‘Engaging the future’, candidates have 3 months to submit their best projects.
Construction21 is in the starting-blocks to assist the participating professionals. We will help them publish case studies that include useful and inspiring information for their peers, technical performances, testimonies of inhabitants, feedbacks from companies…
The international winners’ gala will be held at Batimat, the building industry’s leading international trade show, on Monday, November 4th, 2019. Save the date on your agenda!
A more institutional event is also planned in Santiago, Chile, for COP25 in order to promote the international winners there.
The Green Solutions Awards present the particularity of promoting only real projects, displaying existing solutions which are implemented in buildings, districts and infrastructures. For Construction21, it is necessary to represent various technologies and their interactions from buildings to cities, as the industry develops systemically.
To apply, professionals can therefore submit all kinds of projects: new construction or renovation, office building or housing,; eco-districts, joint development zones, and eco-campuses for districts; energy systems, digital applications, water management plants, or mobility systems for infrastructures.
The jury of Students will be renewed in 2019 for the Buildings contest in France and, new this year, in Luxembourg.
