Let's Win One for the Old Sod
Green Roofs for Healthy Cities, "Your Green Roof Infrastructure Industry Association," as they so unpastorally put it, has sent out a reminder that the deadlines are quick approaching for submitting projects for the three awards they will be presenting at their annual conference, to be held in Boston on May 11th and 12th. As far as I can tell, the contest is pretty much for the honor of the thing as a lazy reading of their website failed to turn up any mention of cash handouts. Last year, American Hydrotech's work for Chicago's Schwab Rehabilitation Hospital won for best "Intensive Institutional," and Terry Guen Design Associates won in the "Intensive Industrial/Commercial"(??!!) category for their work at Millennium Park.
The deadlines for submissions for the Green Roof Awards of Excellence is February 15th, and midnight, February 28th for both the Civic Award for "substantiated action (that) has advanced the public policy debate on green roofs," as well as for the Research Award, which "honors a person or research team who has made an outstanding contribution to the field of green roof research in North America.
Detailed information plus the usual PDF submission forms can be found online.
