UACDC and the UA Office for Sustainability/UA Resiliency Center are pleased to announce that the Conway Urban Watershed Framework Plan: A Reconciliation Landscape for Conway, Arkansas has won a LafargeHolcim Award for North America. According to the Switzerland-based LafargeHolcim Foundation for Sustainable Construction, the biennial international awards “recognizes innovative projects and future-oriented concepts—and is the most significant global competition for sustainable design. The Awards encourages architects, planners, engineers and project owners to go beyond conventional notions of sustainable construction in their work and to harmonize economic, ecological and social concerns.”
The Conway Urban Watershed Framework Plan: A Reconciliation Landscape was sponsored by US EPA Region 6 and the Arkansas Natural Resources Commission under their 319 NPS program with the City of Conway. The Framework Plan mitigates severe water management problems in the sub-watershed encompassing the urbanized area of Conway. The Plan employs green infrastructure to deliver ecosystem services. The approach provides a novel set of transferable planning tools for urban watersheds that combine a Sponge City Gradient, a Water Treatment Technologies Spectrum, the 17 Ecosystem Services, and Six Adaptive Infrastructure Types.
The project will published as a book by ORO Editions/San Francisco in October, 2017.
The LafargeHolcim Foundation has asked that the selection remain confidential among team members until October when prizes will be conferred at a private event to be held in Chicago on Thursday, October 12, 2017. Here, we we will learn of the ranking among the eight or so North American prizes and the project’s eligibility to advance to the global prize selection program. This is the second LafargeHolcim Prize won by the project team in the program’s 14-year history.
