Innovation & Excellence Awards logo

Managed by the Property Council of Australia, the Innovation & Excellence Awards is the most prestigious property awards programs in Australia.

Delivered in partnership with Rider Levett Bucknall, the Awards have been promoting excellence in design and innovation in the built environment since 1982.

Through the program the Property Council of Australia aims to showcase superior examples of iconic projects in property development and investment across a range of sectors and design disciplines.
