The Working Buildings Innovation Awards in association with PFM magazine, offer exhibiting companies at Total Workplace Management the chance to celebrate innovation and business excellence in the effective and efficient management of a working building.

All categories are FREE to enter. Simply submit 500 words about why you think you deserve to win, along with 2 images. Please note that the maximum upload capacity is 2MB.

The awards will be presented to the winning companies during a ceremony at the end of the first day of the events, Wednesday 8 October 2008, at Olympia, London.

The Working Buildings Week Innovation Awards categories are:
NEW FOR 2008 - Introducing London Workplace of the Year
 Do you have the best office in London?
 Do you thing you have what it takes to win London Workplace of the Year?
 Have you implemented innovative lighting, creative ways of reducing waste, or introduced ergonomically designed workstations?

In fact if you have done anything innovative or new with your office, we want to hear about it! Simply submit 500 words about why you think your office deserves to be named London Workplace of the Year, along with 2 images and 3 testimonials from colleagues who use your office. The judges will be conducting site visits of the shortlisted entries to see your office in action. The site visits are likely to be conducted in early September.

Entries are only open to London-based offices, due to the judges' site visits. We will be aiming to launch a country-wide award next year.

 Measurable improvements in reducing resource consumption and the use of sustainable materials
 Achievements in reducing carbon emissions by promoting energy efficiency and renewable energy
 New and innovative ways of improving corporate sustainability in business activity and products
