This award is presented in two categories—Major Deals & Projects and Leadership/Innovation.
The Water Council, in Milwaukee, Wis., received the 2016 Economic Development Leadership Award for its “Water Technology Cluster Leadership.”
The Water Council’s vision was to create a synergistic ecosystem supporting technology research and development; talent & workforce education; and economic growth. It has become an internationally recognized world water hub. The Water Council has become a model for successful public-private partnerships.

mindSHIFT for "Case4Space: How Engaging Workplaces Lead to Transformation and Growth."
Excerpted from the September/October 2015 issue of The LEADER magazine: In the spring of 2012, at the CoreNet Global North America Summit in San Diego, the association presented the results of its research study Corporate Real Estate 2020. When the session broke, conversation spilled out into the foyer.
One of the questions that came up in conversation was, Are we – personally, professionally, or corporately – equipped to face the relentless change and disruptions implied in the research? These questions continued to provoke the mindSHIFT team long after the Summit. Soon, 30 companies and more than 50 leaders (including Millennials) signed up to take part in an 18-month discovery process called Case4Space.
Finally, a clear picture emerged: When we create a process that is social and engaging the results produce an engaging workplace.
Case4Space completed our collective work in October of 2013. Wiley published it in September 2014 as Change Your Space, Change Your Culture: How Engaging Workplaces Lead to Transformation and Growth. Read more>>>

OVG Real Estate, and its Amsterdam office building - The Edge, have received the H. Bruce Russell Global Innovator’s Award from CoreNet Global for 2015.
The Edge, a multi-tenant office building, is currently considered the most sustainable office building in the world. On the north-facing side of the building, the positioning and design of this millennial structure is based on the path of the sun so as to optimize the use of natural lighting. On the south face, solar panels create a shield from the sun and combined with the solar paneling on the roof, produce enough energy to run the aquifer thermal energy storage that in turn generates enough energy to power the heating and cooling system for the building. OVG Real Estate says The Edge is completely self-sufficient regarding energy usage; and they didn’t stop there. Rainwater is collected in reservoirs and used to operate the lavatories and also supply water to the rooftop garden. The lighting system is intuitive and responds to daylight, movement and temperature. And with features like climate control for individual workspaces that employees can manage through an app, The Edge is living up to its current title of “World’s Most Sustainable Building”.
The Edge and OVG received the Sustainable Leadership Awarded presented by CoreNet Global in 2015 and went on the be awarded The 2015 Global Innovator’s Award ahead of more than 40 submissions from corporate real estate projects from around the globe.
