New Timeline for the EBie Awards

Hold on to your retrofits! Over the past five years, the EBies have grown steadily alongside the industry’s know-how in improving existing buildings. We are now planning a new timeline for the competition and will not be accepting applications for 2018. Please stay tuned for more details or email cw@urbangreencouncil.org to be added to our EBies mailing list.

We look forward to seeing your projects in the sixth EBie Awards competition!


Our hats are off to the women and men who innovated, aggravated, and mediated to improve existing buildings so they could celebrate an EBie win on June 20th. From a non-profit to a Fortune 500, universities to affordable housing, our winners turned their buildings into stars. Congratulations as well to our finalists, whose impressive work inspired our jury, and who we hope to see again next year.
