The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) will honor excellence in green residential design and construction practices and outstanding green advocacy efforts with the 2009 NAHB National Green Building Awards.
Awards will be given in the following categories: Advocate of the Year (Builder, Remodeler, Individual, Group); Project of the Year (Single Family, Remodel, Multifamily); Development of the Year; HBA Green Building Program of the Year (New and Existing); and Outstanding Green Marketing. A new category has been established for 2009: the Local Government Award, to recognize a government body that has worked to allow and encourage green practices. The nomination for this award must come from a local home builders’ association.
All award applications, supporting documentation and photographs must be submitted via email or on a compact disk. Download entry forms at www.nahb.org/greenbuildingawards. No paper applications will be accepted. To be eligible, projects must have been started after June 2007 and substantially completed by December 2008. Additional entry requirements and an online application are available online as well. Entries must be postmarked by January 31, 2009.
Award winners will be recognized at a gala dinner on May 8, 2009, as part of the 11th annual NAHB National Green Building Conference in Dallas.
