During the announcements of the 2015 Alberta Steel Design Awards of Excellence, the Lougheed Centre was named winner in the Sustainability category. The Sustainability category recognizes “steel structure in which steel has been used or re-used as part of a sustainable development project that aims to improve environmental impact of the structure by using innovative practices, standards and technologies.”

The Steel Design Award follows several other architectural awards, including four Green Globes for sustainable construction and two Alberta Construction Magazine awards for “Best Institutional Project of Less than $50M” and “Best Project of the Year”.

The University of Alberta also celebrated the Awards Night’s selection of the Physical Activity and Wellness Centre on North Campus as the winner of the Architectural Award, which recognizes “steel structures in which architectural considerations predominantly influence the design, particularly those with exposed steelwork.”
