3 groups collaborate on national awards program. (Transcripts).

Three professional associations, representing more than 90 percent of the commercial interior design and corporate real estate/workplace management sectors, have announced their intent to collaborate in support of an international awards program that recognizes sustainable design leadership for the interior built environment.

The associations are the International Interior Design Association (ILDA), The American Institute of Architects (AIA) Interiors Committee and CoreNet Global. Two awards will recognize sustainable design leadership as articulated by advocacy, mentoring and projects that reflect consistent commitment to the principles of sustainability in professional practice.

The first award will recognize a design professional or design firm, and the second will recognize a business organization.

The Sustainable Design Leadership Award, underwritten by corporate sponsor, The Tandus Group based in Dalton, Ga, is unique, according to Ross Leonard, Director of Architecture and Design Marketing.

"These awards define design excellence in a new and expanded context," he said. "The quest for design aesthetics will always be at the foundation of the architectural process, but through these awards we also recognize the importance of environmentally sustainable design processes."

Nominations opened on May 15, 2003, and will close August 1. Award winners will be recognized in national media. Self-nominations or nominations by others are welcome, and applications are currenly available.
