Apply by Jan. 6 to be a speaker at the USGBC Montana Annual Summit or nominate for the Sustainability Awards.

USGBC Montana is seeking submissions for the Montana Sustainability Awards, as well as for speakers for our upcoming 2017 Annual Summit.

Montana Sustainability Awards

With the 2017 summit, we will once again look at some examples of the best the sustainable building movement has to offer with the Montana Sustainability Awards. USGBC Montana created the awards to acknowledge and celebrate the best in sustainable design and construction across the state. These projects represent the finest standards in sustainability, innovation, building performance and overall integration.

This year’s categories for the awards include residential building, commercial building, site development and products and processes. For eligibility, projects do not need to have a LEED rating (though this is encouraged), but they must have been completed after Jan. 1, 2011. All submissions must be received by Friday, Jan. 6, 2017.

Learn more and make a nomination.

This will be the third year of the Montana Sustainability Awards, which have recognized a number of notable projects around the state. Last year’s awards saw entries from across the AEC industry in Montana. A number of projects stood out, including REHAU MONTANA, a research project on sustainable home building, the new Jabs Hall building at MSU, Park View Elementary by CWG Architects, the Orange Crush building by CTA Architects Engineers and the Solstice Project by MacArthur Means & Wells Architects.

One notable addition last year was the inclusion of a new award category, products and processes. Glo European Windows, based in Missoula, took the first award in this category for its entry, an aluminum-clad window design that features an insulated thermal break and triple-pane glass. These attributes allow the window to perform 25 percent above Energy Star levels for window products.
