Winners announced at 25th annual BREEAM awards

 

Held annually to recognise the highest scoring buildings assessed under BREEAM standards in the previous year, the 2015 BREEAM awards – now in its 25th year - were announced on Tuesday 3rd March at the Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square, London.

 

For each of the 12 categories of BREEAM, the top five scoring buildings across Europe were nominated for an award. These nominees were each invited to submit a case study to a panel of industry judges who then made the final decision on winners.

 

The independent panel included Claudine Blamey (Crown Estate), Alan Cole (Home Office) and Bill Gething (Architect), Thomas Lane (Building magazine), Mike Smith (BSRIA) and Louise Sunderland (UK Green Building Council). Their decisions were bases on BREEAM scores, specific achievements, challenges and the circumstances of each build.

 

The winners were:

 

  • Offices New Construction: One Pancras Square, Kings Cross, London
  • Offices In-Use: Washington Plaza, Paris
  • Offices Refurbishment & Fit Out: Morelands Rooftop, London
  • Retail New Construction: Fornebu S, Oslo
  • Retail In-Use: La Caserne de Bonne, Grenoble
  • Retail Refurbishment & Fit Out: 107-109 Charing Cross Road, London
  • Industrial: Armstrong Point, Wigan
  • Mixed Use and Other Buildings: Brent Civic Centre, London
  • Education: Brandon Primary School, Durham
  • Healthcare: Dumfries and Galloway Acute Mental Health Unit
  • Residential: 119 Ebury Street, London

 

 

New Retail Construction winner, Fornebu S, won the coveted award by just a handful more votes than the category’s runner-up, 119 Ebury Street, out of the several thousand cast.

 

 

Additional awards were handed out for BREEAM Assessor Company of the Year (GreenBuild Consult), Assessors of the Year (Amanda Gallagher of Easlar, Yasmina Mikhael of RES Design Long & Partners, and Barry Rankin of GWP Project Services), and Country First Award (Zsombor Barta of the Sentient Kft for the first BREEAM assessment in South Korea, Anna Foden of Max Fordham for the first assessment in Iraq, Natalya Naumova of Drees & Sommer for Kazakhstan, and Zane Sauka of IB&P Konsultacijas, for the first Latvian assessment).

 

 

Other projects which scored highly were commended by the judges, including the WWF-UK Living Planet Centre in Woking, BLOX in Prague, the Diageo Guinness Brew House in Dublin and 10 Burlington Street in London.

 

 

Gavin Dunn, Director of BREEAM, said: “My sincere congratulations go to the teams behind all of these projects, and to the commitment, drive and ingenuity they have shown in delivering inspirational levels of sustainability. Along with the well documented green benefits of these projects, we know from independent research that these buildings are bringing increased value for investors and improved satisfaction to users and occupiers”
