The editors of THE CONCRETE PRODUCER and CONCRETE CONSTRUCTION have created the annual GreenSite Awards to honor the concrete industry's contributions to the green movement. The awards are an opportunity to show how you are shaping the future of concrete construction.

To enter, send us your (or your customers') best sustainable projects completed before Jan. 1, 2009. Concrete or concrete products must play a significant role, but the project's green attributes are not limited to materials. Each entry will require documentation that an independent rating system has verified its status as a green project. Judges will base GreenSite Award selections on the contributions of the entire project team—producers, contractors, and designers.

Projects can fall within any of 11 categories:

  • Residential
  • Multifamily housing
  • Landscaping
  • Industrial
  • High-rise
  • Institutional
  • Repair & rehabilitation
  • Retrofitting
  • Historic restoration
  • Transportation
  • Commercial
  • All of the winning projects will be featured in THE CONCRETE PRODUCER and CONCRETE CONSTRUCTION magazines. They also will be showcased at next year's World of Concrete GREEN-SITE exhibit. In addition, we will post slideshows of all submitted projects on our Web sites. The deadline for all entries is Aug. 14.
