Simply complete the Nomination here to be involved in the most prestigious awards program recognising innovation and excellence across the country.
The Innovation and Excellence Awards is one of the most prestigious property awards programs in Australia, promoting excellence in design and innovation in the built environment since 1982.
Since 1982, the Property Council of Australia has been recognising excellence in the built environment through our awards programs.
Throughout this time the awards program has been proudly supported by RLB.
In 1991, the Property Council’s then state-based award programs were augmented by the launch of a national award, to recognise national excellence in the efficient use of capital in a new or refurbished development.
In 2006, the awards program was relaunched as the Innovation and Excellence Awards to more effectively promote and celebrate innovation and leading practice within the property development and investment industries.
This expanded on pre-existing awards to recognise excellence across 12 categories:
- Office Developments
- Shopping Centre Developments
- Emerging Assets
- Tourism and Leisure Developments
- Business or Industrial Parks
- Residential Developments
- Government Leadership
- Heritage & Adaptive Reuse
- Master Planned Communities
- Mixed Use Developments
- Public Buildings
- Sustainable Developments
An overall winner – the RLB Australian Development of the Year – is also awarded.
To reflect trends in the industry over the years, changes have been made;
2010 – the Retirement Living and Office Fit Out categories were introduced.
2011 – the Sustainable Development category was expanded into two categories including New Buildings and Existing Buildings, and the Emerging Assets category was discontinued.
2012 – the Award for Innovation was introduced.
2015 – the Award for Best Affordable Housing Development was introduced.
2016 – the Award for Diversity was established.
