BREEAM Awards 2018
Attended by hundreds of built environment practitioners from around the world, the awards were hosted by actor and TV personality Robert Llewellyn, and a keen advocate of sustainability and renewable energy technologies.
The winners include many of the most innovatively sustainable buildings in the UK, and in countries across the globe from China to Brazil. The awards, held this year in partnership with Ecobuild, also recognise high achievement by architects, M&E consultants and BREEAM assessors – and BREEAM again partnered with GRESB to recognise socially responsible investment. New this year are the Regional Awards for building projects that will of inspire sustainability advances in their particular areas of the world.
Selected by an independent panel of experts from shortlists of the year’s highest scoring BREEAM certificated projects, the winning buildings represent superb design and performance in new and existing buildings, refurbishments and fit-outs. They were:
- Bloomberg London – Commercial Project – Design
- Four Pancras Square, London – Commercial Project – Post-Construction
- Forum Kayseri, Turkey – Commercial Project – In-Use
- Tiger Way Primary School and Nursery, London – Public Project – Design
- GSK Centre for Sustainable Chemistry, Nottingham – Public Project – Post-Construction

- SEBRAE Sustainability Centre, Brazil – Regional Award – Americas
- V.Offices, Krakow, AFI Europe, Poland – Regional Award – Central and Eastern Europe
- Bloomberg London and DC2, Prologis Park, Dunstable, UK – Joint winner, Regional Award – Western Europe
The outstanding achievements of the shortlisted projects gave the panel of judges a difficult task when choosing the winners.
Alan Yates, BREEAM Technical Director and Chair of the Judging Panel, said:
“Even more important than the qualities of the shortlisted and winning projects, are the examples they set for others. By demonstrating the practicalities and benefits of sustainable solutions – particularly those that are widely replicable – these projects will inspire others to aim higher with their own developments, so driving improvement throughout their sectors and regions, and internationally.”
- Altarea Cogedim – Large Portfolio (more than 1 billion Euro gross asset value)
- SPF Joint Venture – Rockspring – Small Portfolio (less than 1 billion Euro gross asset value)
- Lizzy Butink, A.S.R. Real Estate – Individual Leadership
