MODERN BUILDER is bringing an exciting new campaign to Ireland


MODERN BUILDER is bringing an exciting new campaign to Ireland – giving architects, builders and the Irish construction industry in general a unique triple opportunity to win the recognition you deserve.

Modern Builder(published by UB Media)are previous winners of prestigious International Green Apple Environment Awards, and they are now sponsoring the campaign to establish an Ireland-only sector.

And it is free!

The Modern Builder Green Apple Awards for the Built Environment (Ireland) are open to anyone in the construction industry across the whole of Ireland.

If you have any projects that benefit the built environment, we want to hear about them – and we will reward the best ones.

There are three chances of Irish glory, as you can win Gold, Silver or Bronze awards.

But your chance of success does not end there!

Your projects will also be entered into the International Green Apple Awards, where more Gold, Silver and Bronze trophies are waiting to be won.

And if you are one of the highest scorers, you could be chosen to represent your country in the European Business Awards for the Environment, as the Green Apple Awards is one of the few accredited campaigns that acts as an automatic feeder scheme into this Brussels-led initiative.

If you go to Green Apple Awards at you will find a category to suit you – or you might prefer simply to submit photos to be considered in the Beautiful Buildings section.

Every organisation is entitled to submit a free entry before February 28 (online, by post or email) and you can compete in more than one category if you choose to pay the Additional Entry Fee of £100 + VAT for each.

Full details can be found on the website and the Green Apple Awards were initially launched in 1994 by The Green Organisation – an international, independent, non-political, non-activist, non-profit environment group, dedicated to recognising, rewarding and promoting environmental best practice around the world.

The entry form tells you what the judges are looking for and it gives you a wide selection of categories to enter.

All winners will be invited to collect their trophies at a glittering presentation ceremony in Ireland, and further ceremonies will be held in London and Europe for companies who go on to further achievement at those levels.

Speaking at the launch of the Modern Builder Green Apple Awards, Jasen Uprichard (Partner) said: “We are devoted to helping the Irish construction industry, and by creating an Ireland-only sector within one of the world’s leading environment awards schemes, we are giving everyone the chance to showcase their favourite projects and top achievements.

“We know the value of winning a Green Apple Award and we want our readers to enjoy the publicity, increased awareness and greater business opportunities that go hand-in-hand with success at this level.

“We wish them all the very best of luck.”
