New Rising Star Award opens for nominations

A new Award has been created that will recognise sustainability champions in the property and construction sectors. UK-GBC, along with PRP Architects, is supporting the launch of the Rising Star Award which will honour a member of the built environment community who has driven change and innovation around sustainability. 

The award has been set up in memory of Mel Starrs, a prominent built environment practitioner with a passion for sustainability, who passed away in July 2012. 

The initiative is a chance to nominate a colleague or peer who has made a real difference to the sustainability agenda and shine a light on their achievements.

Paul King, CEO at the UK Green Building Council said: “We are very proud to be supporting this new Award along with PRP Architects. Recognising built environment professionals who have made a real difference in championing sustainability is a fitting tribute to Mel Starrs, who was so well known in the sector for pushing the green agenda forward.”

To nominate someone for the Award, fill out our short submission form here. The deadline for nominations is 25 January 2013.

Finalists will be profiled on the PRP and UK-GBC websites, through social media channels, in Building Magazine and at Ecobuild 2013, where the winner will be presented with their trophy.
