The City of San Antonio’s Office of Sustainability is now accepting nominations for the fifth annual Green Building Awards, a showcase of breakthroughs and emerging technologies in the field of green building. The deadline for nominations is Friday, May 3, 2013. Nomination forms are available at the Office of Sustainability website.
The awards will feature categories for new construction and retrofit projects, in both residential and commercial construction. This year’s awards will feature new categories highlighting historic commercial and residential developments. The City has also broadened the timeframe of eligible projects to include any structure built between Jan. 1, 2010 and Dec. 31, 2012.
In addition, coinciding with the Department of Energy’s designation of San Antonio as a “Solar America City,” a special award will be given to a nominee who has made significant contributions in solar energy.
Winners will be announced at a special awards ceremony on Wednesday, June 19, 2013 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, 200 E. Market. St.
