The Cleveland Green Building Coalition

Award category


Year released


The Cleveland Green Building Coalition received the Inspiring Efficiency Innovation Award for their Emerging Green Designers Symposium, a program educating young design professionals on residential green building techniques. This innovative program connects young architects to local home builders and developers. This year alone the Symposium generated over $800,000 of energy efficient housing construction. The Homebuilders Association of Greater Cleveland has purchased one plan from the Symposium and is using it to construct the feature home for their 2006 CitiRama home show. A partnership with the Cuyahoga Community Land Trust is building four affordable homes in the Cleveland EcoVillage and next year Habitat for Humanity will participate in the Symposium as client for energy-efficient, green design.
