9th Annual Design & Build with FSC Awards
June 6, 2013
Each year at Greenbuild, the Forest Stewardship Council US recognizes the best commercial and residential building projects, based on innovative uses of FSC-certified wood products. Award-winning projects demonstrate that wood from responsibly managed forests can meet all design and construction needs. Selection criteria include the amount of FSC-certified wood used, innovation and efforts to advance market transformation.
Past award winners have included the Bullitt Center in Seattle, Washington, which is the first FSC Project Certified Commercial Building in the US, and Big Rock Cottage in the US Virgin Islands, which attained 5-Star Tropical Green Building Certification requiring all tropical hardwoods to be FSC certified. In 2011, the winning projects included the Hawaii Preparatory Academy Energy Research Lab, a Living Building that used 100% FSC-certified wood, and zHome, and 10-unit spec home development in the Seattle suburb of Issaquah, where 78 percent of wood used was FSC certified.
