Low Energy Project of the Year

Entry Criteria

Energy efficiency and associated environmental concerns and costs are central to contemporary building design – both newbuild and retrofit.

This category will reward projects that have used timber technology to make a tangible difference in lowering the overall environmental impact of the project and used circular economy principles.

Entries should highlight and explain in an understandable, measurable way how timber – either structurally, externally or internally – has been exploited to its maximum potential to drive forward the concept of low-carbon building design.

Special emphasis will be placed on lifecycle analysis, use of smart technology to measure both embodied and operational carbon, the route to net zero carbon targets, use of certified timber, whole-life costs, the use of circular economy principles, ‘Fabric First’ and ‘Passivhaus’ methods, EPDs and digital modelling.
