This year, Sustainable San Mateo County (SSMC), Peninsula Clean Energy and the American Institute of Architects’ San Mateo County chapter (AIASMC) are cosponsoring the Green Building Award, which has been awarded every year since 2003. This award is given to a project that demonstrates exemplary green, sustainable design and construction, and a commitment to electrification or decarbonization efforts. It also supports environmentally friendly design in architecture and recognizes the architects, builders and owners of these green buildings.
The Green Building Award is open to any building constructed within the last five years that is located in San Mateo County. Remodels and additions are also eligible to apply for the award. The project must have completed its final inspection by Friday, January 12, 2024. Previous nominees may apply if their original projects have had additional, substantial green improvements or additional documentation is available. The Green Building Award winner will be selected by an independent panel of recognized professionals in the disciplines of green and sustainable construction.
