The 2021 Hertfordshire Building Futures Awards recognise and reward sustainable development across the county. Buildings completed in Hertfordshire over the past three years are eligible to enter before the deadline of Friday 14th May.
The Awards recognise teams adopting best practice in sustainable design and construction across the county. They showcase and celebrate exemplar sustainable developments that demonstrate innovation, creativity, design quality and place making and which make a real difference.
Jennifer Owen, Building Futures and Landscape Manager for Hertfordshire County Council, commented: “We are passionate about acknowledging and supporting exemplar design, construction and retrofit projects that utilise sustainable processes and technologies at the Building Futures Awards. It is a great platform to celebrate excellent design and innovation which benefits the environment and quality of life for residents in Hertfordshire. Many exemplary projects have already been nominated, from individual buildings through to holistic large-scale developments, and we look forward to celebrating all the success stories at the Awards in October.”
