View Organizational and Program Awardees

DVGBC honors a company/organization with a Groundbreaker Organizational Award for a demonstrated commitment to sustainability in the built environment. The past two years have included recognition of both for-profit and non-profit organizations. The Program Award was suggested by this year’s jury based on a project nomination that significantly stood out, but did not fit the definition of a built project.

DVGBC is proud to announce the six finalists for the 2016 Groundbreaker Awards! Groundbreaker project finalists were selected for their emphasis on innovation and leadership in green design and construction, and commitment to sustainability.
