The 2024 Architecture & Design Sustainability Awards Now Open

The prestigious 2024 Architecture & Design Sustainability Awards are now accepting entries. This hallmark event, celebrating its 18th year, shines a spotlight on the finest sustainable practices in architecture and design across Australia.

From promoting the principles of the carbon minimisation to emphasizing compliance with the National Construction Code (NCC), the program has been instrumental in advancing environmentally conscious practices across the industry. Additionally, the awards have spotlighted innovations in green product manufacturing, highlighted the importance of designing disaster-resilient buildings, and championed initiatives aimed at creating social sustainability within the built environment.
