The deadline for submitting entries to the Isover Energy Efficiency Awards (EEA) has been extended until October 11th. The inaugural awards scheme is being targeted at building professionals including architects, engineers, builders and developers across Ireland who have built new and renovated buildings that have been built with a very low energy demand.
A €10,000 prize will be presented to the overall winner of the Irish finals who will go forward to represent Ireland at a European Awards ceremony in Madrid in May 2011. The winner will also be profiled in the internationally-distributed Isover ‘Best Of’ book.
The awards scheme acknowledges the considerable shift within the Irish construction industry towards energy efficient building design, explains Kieran Holohan of Isover Ireland.
The awards will celebrate Ireland’s most energy efficient renovation and new construction projects, both in the residential and non-residential sectors.
Projects entered in the competition must be fully completed by December 2010 and not more than 5 years old. Closing date for entries is Monday, October 11th 2010. The Irish awards ceremony will take place in December 2010. For more see www.isover-eea.com.
