Message from the Judges

The 2016 UDIA National Awards has delivered an outstanding, diverse range of projects from all corners of Australia. This year’s judging process has reaffirmed our belief that the urban development industry makes a significant, positive contribution to Australia and that the awards process is fundamental in the highlighting of new innovations and development outcomes which ultimately benefit the whole of the development industry.

All of the nominees should be very proud of the projects they have put forward and as experienced last year, it has been incredibly difficult to separate the winners from the rest of the field. Congratulations to each and every one of the nominees and winners.

The UDIA National Awards for Excellence continues to build on its profile as a premier national event for honouring outstanding urban development in Australia.
