Livable Buildings Awards
A program to showcase buildings that excel in design, operation, and occupant satisfaction.
In August of 2014, a jury of CBE Industry Partners selected the David & Lucile Packard Foundation Headquarters in Los Altos, California, as the winner of the 2014 Livable Buildings Award. The DPR Southwest Headquarters in Phoenix, Arizona, was recognized with an honorable mention.
These projects meet the highest standards for providing healthy and productive indoor environments, and represent best practices for sustainability and overall design.
These winning projects, along with the other award finalists, ranked among the top scorers in CBE's Occupant Indoor Environmental Quality Survey. The survey, used to study occupant satisfaction with the quality of the indoor environment, has been implemented in over 650 buildings around the globe.

Honorable Mention and Finalists
The jury also recognized the DPR Southwest Headquarters with an Honorable Mention from among the finalists that qualified for the competition.
