Building a better future through the acknowledgement of design excellence.

2018 Sustainability Awards Winners

Over 150 projects, people and products were submitted to the 2018 Sustainability Awards, all of which exhibited such a high calibre and level of design that choosing the finalists was an arduous task, even for our highly experienced jury.

After careful and deliberate consideration, our jury managed to hand-pick 12 winners they believe push sustainability in the architecture and design industry to new frontiers, and that help propel Australia’s leading architects onto the global stage.

About

For over a decade we’ve held the nation’s most respected design awards program devoted to sustainable building. We reward those who share our desire to curtail and reverse the ecological footprint of our built environment. We celebrate those who design, manufacture and construct green buildings of all sizes and purposes.

And those who continually hold the line against compromise to do so.

Because we believe sustainability should be the primary requirement for all building design and the major measure of architectural achievement.

BEST OF THE BEST (PRODUCT OR PROJECT)

Selected from among all the category winners on the basis of both sustainable outcomes and aesthetics and innovative design principles.

GREEN BUILDING

This category is defined as a structure that has a quantifiable minimal impact on the environment and refers to both a structure and its processes that are environmentally responsible and resource-efficient throughout a building’s lifecycle: from design, construction, operation, maintenance and even renovation, if need be.

SMART BUILDING (PROJECT)

Any building within Australia that uses either smart design, smart materials or a range of automated processes to automatically control the building’s operations including heating, ventilation, air conditioning, lighting, security and other systems. This infrastructure helps owners, operators and facility managers improve asset reliability and performance, which reduces energy use and minimises the environmental impact of building.
