Green Solutions Awards 2018: which projects are qualified for the international finals?

All Construction21 chapters, who run the contest in their country, have revealed their national champions! They are now qualified to enter the international finals scheduled during the COP24 in Poland, on December 6th.

Register for the awards.

Five expert juries from various countries will select the winning buildings, districts and infrastructures among the finalists. Along with the designation of winners, the jury’s mission is to send a message to the market by highlighting innovative solutions that are interesting to replicate on a much larger scale.

National winners first, but international finalists too

To win their place in finals, first, candidates had to demonstrate their worth to national juries in their category or receive the User’s choice award, based on the online votes by Construction21 users. In France, another possibility was available to candidates, for the first time, a student jury could also promote a candidate to the international finals.

After being rewarded in their own country, winning buildings, districts and infrastructures will now be confronted with the decision of the international jurors, recruited among world experts.


For this 2018 edition, five international juries will examine the finalists in the following categories:

  • Energy & Climates (temperate  and hot)
  • Low Carbon + Health & Comfort + Smart Building
  • Grand Prizes (Sustainable Renovation + Sustainable Construction)
  • Districts
  • Infrastructures

For each rewarded building, district or infrastructure, the jury decides the message to be sent through that victory, hence contributing to the mission of the Green Solutions Awards: disseminating innovation at a large scale and accelerating the environmental transition of buildings, cities and territories.

Green Solution Awards provide remarkable visibility around the world: 1.5 million views

Though an intense on- and offline communication campaign, the contest, the candidates, sponsors and partners benefit from substantial cover on all 12 platforms of the Construction21 network, on social media and during dedicated events.

The contest grows bigger every year and generated 1.5 million views in 2017, demonstrating the growing impact of the Green Solutions Awards in its dissemination role for innovations for the sector.
