It’s award season and we’re holding our breath for the Breathing Wall.
The Junglefy Breathing Wall has been nominated as a finalist for three awards!
We’re pretty excited about our Breathing Wall and to know others are as excited as we are is fantastic. Here’s what the Green Globe judges said when they announced us as a finalist:
“Plants cleaning the air, saving energy and beautifying our workplaces… brilliant!”
Aww shucks, we think so too. Now here’s a bit about each of the awards we’re up for:
Architecture & Design 2016 Sustainability Awards
Established in 2007, the Architecture & Design Sustainability Awards celebrate excellence in sustainable design and building. In its tenth year, the Sustainability Awards recognises environmentally sustainable building and design initiatives that go ‘beyond the tick-a-box approach’.
There are 11 awards up for grabs and the Junglefy Breathing Wall has been nominated for two awards including: Green Building Product – This award recognises a new product or material which helps advance progress in the sustainable built environment and Innovation of the Year – this award rewards a new service, resource, process or application which helps advance progress in the sustainable built environment.
Green Globe Awards
Hosted by the NSW Office of Environment & Heritage since 2012, the Green Globe Awards are an annual environmental recognition program celebrating excellence, leadership and innovation in sustainability in New South Wales.
There are three major award categories including Awards for Businesses and Individuals, Awards for Impact and the Best of the Best Awards, with 13 awards in total. The one we are up for is the Innovation Award (in the Impact category) that recognises outstanding technology, design or research to benefit the NSW community and sustainability in general.
The Junglefy Breathing Wall shares the finalist list with three other incredible projects. Check out the links above to learn about them and the awards themselves.
Green Globe Award winners are announced on Thursday 27th October 2016.
Wish us luck! We’re up against some stiff competition but that’s just testament to the ability of our industry – we’re just thrilled to be a finalist. We have also nominated the Junglefy Breathing Wall into the Banksia Awards and will find out on the 26 October 2016 if we’re also a finalist.
