The Forest Stewardship Council-US recognizes the best commercial and residential construction projects each year, based on innovative use of FSC-certified wood products.
Announced during a reception at Greenbuild in Philadelphia, the award-winning projects demonstrate the benefits and practicality of using products from responsibly-managed forests.
Winning projects are selected based on the following criteria:
- Quanitity of FSC-certified forest products used
- Innovative use of FSC-certified products
- Extent of supply chain development resulting from the project
Collectively, these projects show that use of the FSC-certified wood delivers benefits to the forest and the marketplace, and that wood from responsibly managed forests can meet all design and construction needs.
