Coverings 2012 Stays Green

January 09, 2012

Coverings and Environmental Design + Construction (ED+C) magazine are again sponsoring PROJECT: Green, which recognizes stone and tile projects that focus on innovative, sustainable design. Projects chosen for their eco-minded achievements will be honored in a centerpiece display at the April 17-20 expo and conference and will be featured in a 2012 issue of ED+C. Entries are now being accepted until January 30, 2012.

In 2011, the five PROJECT: Green honorees included Green Builder Media’s Orlando showhouse (pictured), which used ceramic and porcelain tile products from Florim and Refin, and a swimwear boutique in Coconut Creek, FL, that incorporated a Silestone counter with 75 percent recycled content. A 2,200-sq.-ft. pool patio designed by Colorco Ltd in Merrimack, NH, and a bathroom in Norwood, NJ, were also recognized. While last year’s winning projects were based in the United States, the competition is open to both domestic and international designs. To compete, projects must have been completed within the past two years (January 2010–January 2012), and incorporate tile and stone in a manner that results in an aesthetically distinct site while demonstrating that sustainability was the chief mission.

Each entry must be submitted online here and must be accompanied by at least three photographic illustrations; essays detailing the sustainability of the project; a list of the green certifications applied for/awarded for the project; a list of green products used; and any pdfs or videos related to the project. Multiple entries are accepted, and it is open to architects, designers, builders, contractors, distributors, retailers, manufacturers and installers. There is no fee to enter.
