The BOLD Awards

Americans will, on average, spend 87% of their lives indoors. Technology and new innovations offer opportunities to improve comfort, sustainability, and efficiency; but change is never easy. The BOLD Awards recognize Building Optimizers, Leaders, and Disruptors who are pushing boundaries and transforming the way we use technology in the built environment.

Aquicore, Comfy, Enlighted, and View proudly present The BOLD Awards to celebrate exceptional contributions to the real estate industry. The annual awards spotlight key individual contributions to innovation in buildings that are improving our communities while making our buildings more sustainable.

The BOLD Awards 2016 will be held on October 5th in Los Angeles on the first day of the Greenbuild International Conference & Expo.

In 2015, judges from USGBC, GreenBiz, Institute for Market Transformation, and other organizations selected one recipient from each of four categories. See who won last year.


The Categories

The BOLD Awards recognize leaders in the following 4 categories:

The Mentor – Mentors are key to all of our successes.  The Mentor Award recognizes a senior leader whose support of innovative ideas, technologies, and programs positively impacted the efficiency and sustainability of their built environment. 


The Innovator – Happy tenants are the best tenants. The Innovator Award recognizes an individual who pioneered unique and creative programs or initiatives with the goal of increasing tenant engagement, satisfaction, and retention.

The Champion – Every team needs its champion. The Champion award recognizes a leader who developed innovative systems or processes with cutting-edge technology, solutions or strategies to solve difficult commercial real estate challenges.


The Unsung Hero – Sometimes the people creating the most important change operate under the radar. This award highlights an individual who is instrumental in accelerating the adoption of technology in buildings, but largely does so behind the scenes.
