The Housing Industry Association-Boral GreenSmart Awards have now been running for 10 years. They recognise the importance of environmentally advanced housing.
The following list of winners would have to be a ‘good green starting point’..
“giving sound consideration to material choice, location of windows to capture natural light, as well as recycling of the existing building materials and improving the building’s thermal performance with double glazing”.
This year’s awards ceremony was held on May 19 at the Great Hall in Parliament House, Canberra.
HIA’s Dr Ron Silberberg said
“Back in 1999.. HIA decided there should be a dedicated program of awards for industry members who planned and built to the highest standards of sustainability…
At the time, the critics said we would never attract sufficient interest from the industry. The fact that every year we set new records for our entries shows just how wrong they were..”
