Description
The purpose of the Zerofootprint Re-Skinning Awards is to stimulate market-disrupting improvements in the design and development of retrofitting and re-skinning technologies. These are newly evolving technologies and building systems that improve the energy efficiency and livability of older buildings. Upgrading our existing inventory of energy-wasting buildings will reinvent our cities and improve our quality of life.
