Last night I was in Paris for the Mondial du Batiment Awards, one of Europe’s top events promoting innovation in the building industry.

Here is a link to the details of all the winners and below are some images from the event.

About the Mondial du Batiment Awards

To reinforce the importance of innovation, Le Mondial du Batiment partnered with ADEME to organise the Mondial du Bätiment Awards.

The three awards highlighted market trends and the latest innovations.


The Awards are a unique cross-industry event that recognizes not only the show’s top innovative products and solutions but also smart applications, and architects who have an innovative approach to energy performance.

Awards to be showcased at Batimat

For the first time Videos of nominated and winning products will be projected onto giant Innovation Towers in areas of each hall specifically dedicated to innovation at Batimat.
