Some of the finest examples of sustainable buildings from across the world have been shortlisted for 2016 BREEAM awards. The winners will be announced at a celebration dinner at the London Marriot Hotel in Grosvenor Square on 8th March 2016.

Drawn from highest scoring buildings last year – under the BREEAM schemes for assessing building sustainability – the shortlists include ground-breaking developments from the UK, France, Sweden, Russia, the Netherlands, Spain, Belgium, the Czech Republic and Romania.

Director of BREEAM Gavin Dunn said ‘This year we are celebrating 25 years of BREEAM so it’s great to see such a fantastic variety of innovative and inspirational buildings that demonstrate just how far developers and architects how come on the sustainability journey in that time. We look forward to celebrating the achievements of all the shortlisted teams at the awards dinner on 8th March.’

The shortlists are derived from the top five scoring buildings in each category of BREEAM (offices, retail, education, industrial, residential and mixed use). There are awards for new construction in all categories, and for refurbishment and fit-out and in-use in the office and retail categories. The selected project teams are then invited to submit a case study to the panel of independent industry judges who make the final decision on who wins the award. (The shortlists can be viewed on the BREEAM website)

Architect Bill Gething, UKGBC’s policy advisor Louise Sutherland, Claudine Blamey Head of Sustainability at The Crown Estate, Sarah Richardson Editor of Building magazine and John Cole of the Home Office will join BREEAM’s Technical Director Alan Yates on the judge’s panel for 2016.

Other awards that will be announced on the 8th March include: the new BREEAM Talent Award for university students and Assessor of the Year and BREEAM Country First Awards. The prestigious Your BREEAM award will also be revealed - this is the only award based on an open vote for the public’s favourite BREEAM building.
