Rheem is sponsoring a new award that recognizes Innovative approaches to water and energy savings in the bath. The "Best Sustainable Bath Award" category is the newest category in the 2009 NKBA Design Competition, hosted annually by the National Kitchen & Bath Association.
Formerly named the "Smartest Hot Water Award" in its 2008 competition debut, the new award recognizes sustainable solutions being applied in today's new and remodeled bathrooms. Designers entering any of the competition's bathroom design categories will be invited to submit additional information demonstrating how they maximized both comfort and resource efficiency.
The winner of the "Sustainable Bath Award" will receive a US$5,000 award and be recognized at the NKBA Design Competition Awards Ceremony during the 2009 Kitchen/Bath Industry Show (K/BIS) in Atlanta, which will be held from April 30 to May 3, 2009.
