greenbuildingNew Haven: The Connecticut Green Building Council (CTGBC) is now receiving entry submissions for the 2017 CT Green Building Awards. Each year, CTGBC organizes a panel of industry experts to judge project submissions on sustainability, overall design, building performance, and other metrics. Projects are delineated into categories for residential, commercial, and public/institutional buildings, as well as student projects. 

For the first time, the 2017 Awards will include an “Out of State Project” category for Connecticut residents or firms that have done outstanding work on projects outside the state. The CTGBC also annually honors an outstanding environmental advocate with the Judy Swann Green Advocate Award, named after longtime CTGBC executive director Judy Swann.

The 2017 CT Green Building Awards will be presented on November 2nd at Alexion Pharmaceuticals, which recently earned LEED Platinum certification.  All project submissions and green advocate nominations must be received by September 19th.
