Green Building Calculator wins Green Apple Award
Press release: 6th October 2020

Green Building Calculator has won a Green Apple Award for environmental best practice:

GBE Green Building Calculator enables investigation of a proposed building to obtain information regarding Energy Consumption and Carbon in use.  It is an impartial, easy to use product that can make a real difference to the world around us.  Different building shapes, methods of construction, materials choices and resultant energy demand and consumption can be compared easily.

Architects and other professionals now have a quick way of creating greener buildings or easing their way into the ‘New Normal’.  Moreover, they will understand why 50mm of stone wool insulation, shown in ageing textbooks, is no longer enough and sometimes has the wrong properties for the application. They will be able to do their own U value calculation independently of manufacturers or suppliers.

Green Apple Environment Awards recognises, rewards and promotes environmental best practice around the world.  The Awards were launched in 1994 by The Green Organisation and have become well established as one of the most popular environmental campaigns in the world.

They have now extended into the Green World Awards: the largest environmental awards campaign on Earth, with entries from Governments, Ministries and Regional Authorities as well as companies, organisations and communities.

Brian Murphy, the creator of Green Building Calculator (GBC) is the founder of Green Building Encyclopaedia (GBE) a growing information resource about creating healthy, environmental and efficient buildings.  GBE includes design advice, guidance and technical detail regarding the selection, design or specification of building methods, materials, services, systems, products and whole buildings.

Brian Murphy commented: “We are delighted to have won a Green Apple Award for our latest product, Green Building Calculator.  It goes to show that a small enterprise can start to make a big difference in a fast changing world.  The product brings 45 years’ of experience and 20 years’ of environmental know-how to help accelerate the adoption of low carbon building methods and materials.  We aim to fill the technology gap in architectural education and knowledge.”
