    The competition is open for projects in architecture, building and civil engineering, landscape and urban design, materials, products and construction technologies that contribute to the five “target issues” for sustainable construction. The competition has two categories with different requirements.

    Evaluation process

    Renowned technical universities lead the independent juries in five regions of the world. They evaluate entries against the “target issues” for sustainable construction.

    “Target issues” for sustainable construction

    Living up to the five “target issues” defined by the Holcim Foundation to quantify the degree to which buildings contribute to sustainable development: The Minimal Impact North Vancouver Outdoor School is completely self-reliant and CO2-neutral. Elevated on a structural platform offering spectacular views and access to nature, the building’s placement also offers protection against future flood concerns.

    A framework for sustainable construction

    The Holcim Foundation for Sustainable Construction is committed to the “triple bottom line” concept, which asserts that long-term and sustainable progress requires the balanced achievement of economic development, environmental performance and social advancement.

    Based on this concept and to make sustainable construction easier to understand, evaluate and apply, the Holcim Foundation and its renowned partner universities have identified a set of five “target issues” for sustainable construction, which serve as a basis for the evaluation of submissions in the Holcim Awards competition and for assessing other projects in the context of publications on exemplary sustainable construction buildings.
