The Buildings of Excellence Competition recognizes visionary developers and architects who design, build and renovate beautiful, low-carbon buildings. The Competition supports Governor Cuomo’s Green New Deal, the most aggressive climate change program in the nation that puts New York State on a path to economy wide carbon-neutrality as well as the State’s mandate for an 85 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.

Buildings of Excellence is the only competition of its kind and requires each project to demonstrate how it will achieve low carbon performance that is resilient and replicable with the ability for broad adoption, provides superior financial benefits for owners, and provides a healthy, safe and outstanding living environment for occupants. The winning projects will also provide comprehensive data on design and construction practices matched with detailed cost information that that can be analyzed to increase the number of low- to zero-carbon buildings in New York State.

Awards will be distributed in the categories of Early Design, Late Design, Under Construction and Post-Completion Performance Optimization. Join us to see who will receive the inaugural awards of up to $1 million.
