About the Holcim Awards

The Holcim Awards for Sustainable Construction are a prestigious international competition that have attracted thousands of sustainable construction project submissions from  around the world. The Holcim Awards recognizes and celebrates forward-looking and innovative projects, concepts and technologies in the fields of architecture, urban design, civil engineering and related disciplines. The Awards are open to: sustainable building and civil engineering works; landscape, urban design and infrastructure projects; and materials, products and construction technologies. The competition offers 2 Million USD in prize money per three- year competition cycle to projects that demonstrate a balance in environmental, social and economic performance. The third competition cycle is open for online submission until March 23, 2011. The Awards have a "Main" category for professionals as well as "Next Generation" category for students. Detailed information can be found online at www.holcimawards.org. 

Some exceptional Canadian winners from previous cycles include Greening the Infrastructure at Benny Farm in Montreal which won Gold in the 2005 North American competition and Bronze in the Global phase in 2006. In 2008, Living with Lakes Centre for freshwater restoration and research in Sudbury, Ontario, was honored with the Bronze award in the North American competition. Evergreen Brick Works in Toronto won an Acknowledgement Prize that same year. These projects have all been completed or are in the final stages of construction since winning the Holcim Awards 

"Receiving the international recognition of the Holcim Award was a major
turning point in our fund raising effort to complete the project. I truly
believe that we would not have succeeded without it, especially in this
difficult financial time“ - Dr. John Gunn, Professor, Laurentian
University, Sudbury


"Participating in the Holcim Awards process opened our eyes to the larger
world of sustainable construction. The prestigious nature of the award in
the design and construction industry helped us attract new partners to the
project." - David Stonehouse, Evergreen Brick Works
