(CNS): The Beach House in Little Cayman and Rum Point House on Grand Cayman are joint winners of the 2015 Governor’s Award for Design and Construction Excellence. Governor Helen Kilpatrick said the two buildings represented two very different but superbly designed and executed variants of the classic Caribbean beachside residence.

Noting the high level of sustainability and environmental responsibility shown by all of the nominations for the award, the governor also announced that James Whittaker and GreenTech Environmental were commended for their exemplary contribution to sustainability and environment awareness in the field of residential building science in the Cayman Islands and for their various education and outreach programmes.

The three awards were presented at a reception at Government House on 08 December 2015.

The Governor’s Award aims to encourage, foster and maintain innovation, sustainability and excellence in the Cayman Islands construction industry. The application process is open to all projects small or large. Projects only need to demonstrate why it is special in any one or more areas of environmental friendliness, Caymanian style, uniqueness, or any other aspect that the residential project nominator finds important.

Submissions for the Governor’s Award were judged on the following criteria: design excellence, creativity and innovation, sustainability and the environment, value, buildability and cultural response.

The judges looked for clearly presented nominations that concisely informed them of the residential project scope and its overall response to these criteria.
