During Arendal Week in August 2022 The Plus received Storebrand Eiendoms Sustainability Award.

"The purpose of this award is to be an inspiration and motivation for an industry that means a lot in terms of its climate footprint, and which can have a major positive impact on the environment if we move in the right direction", says Storebrand Eiendom's CEO, Truls Nergaard, in a press release (August 16th, 2022).

"This is a great recognition, especially because we see that the ambitions for the award are the same as ours: To push and be at the forefront of the green shift. We are feeling understood and reconized when Storebrand Eiendom endorses The Plus as a showcase for a project going further than the conventional requirements, and that means a lot", says Vestre's sales and project manager, Marianne Preus Jacobsen.

Later that year, the readers of the design and architecture magazine Detail voted their favorite project in 2022: The Plus, the world's most environmentally friendly furniture factory. Detail is a recognized international magazine for architecture and construction details, which is distributed to 80 countries. Every other year since 2002, an international jury has nominated building projects from all over the world.
