Elementa shortlisted for 2 CIBSE Building Performance Awards for the third year running

We are delighted to announce that we have been shortlisted by CIBSE for two Awards for the third year in a row. The CIBSE Building Performance Awards recognise the people, products and projects that demonstrate sustainable engineering excellence in the built environment. The Awards focus on actual, measured performance, not design intent or performance specifications.

This year we have not only been recognised for our innovative project work, but also as a forward thinking company – nominated for Building Consultancy of the Year (up to 100 people). This award highlights consultancies which have demonstrated an outstanding contribution to the design or refurbishment of buildings to meet the clients expectation of performance, including occupant satisfaction, comfort and energy performance, throughout the operating life.

As for our pioneering project work, we have also been nominated for International Project of the Year to which we hope to retain our 2016 title after winning the award last year for the David and Lucile Packard Foundation Headquarters. This year’s nominated project is the DPR Net Positive Energy San Francisco Office, recognised for demonstrating that Net Zero Energy Certified buildings are accessible to a wide range of companies, not just those that are sustainability experts or that have large construction or corporate social responsibility budgets/obligations. DPR’s San Francisco office was designed with aggressive energy efficiency goals—a target of net positive energy production achieved through reduction of energy loads via efficient architecture, HVAC and electrical systems and off-set by photovoltaic and solar thermal systems.

Rob Harris, Principal, proudly commented “For the third year running, we have 2 outstanding nominations at these industry leading awards. Being nominated for Consultancy of the Year is a fantastic compliment to our hard working team who maintain their commitment to the environment, company, projects, peers and most importantly our clients/building occupants/local communities. It is a great honour to be recognised for our world-class leading efforts in achieving not just carbon and energy efficient projects, but those which make a true positive impact to the people who live and work in them. We would love to retain the International Project of the Year award for the second year running as recognition of our continued and ever improving focus on environmental design improvement.”

The winners will be announced at the official awards dinner at the Grosvenor Hotel in February 2017.
