CAMPAIGN: Green Builder Home of the Year Awards

CONTENT: Press Release

May 14, 2015 /3BL Media/ - Green Builder® magazine is looking for the best in residential, green homes for their annual Home of the Year Awards. The contest looks at innovative design, sustainable features, whole home performance, and integration with the natural environment. Winners will receive coverage in the December 2015 issue of Green Builder magazine as well as on www.greenbuildermedia.com.

The contest offers three categories:

  • Mainstream Green: Judges will look at innovation but specifically focus on the energy efficiency of a project. Requires a HERS rating of 50 or better and the total project must be less than 3,500 square feet (or 800 square feet per occupant).
  • Alternative Building Technology: Open to projects that include some form of alternative building technology system such as SIPs, ICFs, etc. Third party certification is not required in this category.
  • General Category: From the pool of submissions in this category the judges pick out what they feel are the very best projects and then categorize them giving each entry a chance to shine on its own and not have to fit into a pre-determined category. Third party certification is not required in this category.

With entry fees ranging from $69-109 the contest is affordable and will be judged by a panel of respected builders, architects and design professionals. The deadline for entries is July 24, 2015.
