The Awards took place on Tuesday 7th March 2017 in London and now represent a firm fixture in the calendar and a must-attend night of the year for property and built environment professionals. Over 40 projects from around the world were shortlisted this year, each one representing an example of high sustainability performance coupled with commitment and vision to creating and maintaining healthy, productive places. This year we partnered with GRESB to introduce new award categories for socially responsible investment based on the use of BREEAM and GRESB.

Over 7,500 votes were cast this year with each and every project in the shortlist attracting strong support and enthusiasm. The ultimate winner was the EUIPO (European Union Intellectual Property Office) in Alicante. "Sustainable, modern, crisp, beautiful" said one voter, "It's a green building with a great design" said another and "Es fantastico!!!".
Congratulations to the EUIPO team which includes RUBIO Arquitectura, FCC Construcción, BREEAM Assessor Servicios Ambientales Integrales del Norte and of course the client EUIPO.
