2019 UDIA Awards For Excellence Guidelines coming soon



The Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA) actively promotes quality and innovation across the urban development industry.

Through our annual Awards for Excellence program, we recognise and celebrate the best projects of the year, and offer the world a glimpse into the first-class developments happening here in Victoria.

In 2017, we received a record-breaking number of award entries. The high calibre submissions prove that Victoria’s industry has a deep respect for design, development, innovation, sustainability – and most importantly – delivering high quality projects to meet the needs of current and future Victorians.

The winners were announced at UDIA’s 22nd Annual Awards for Excellence Gala Lunch on December 1st, in a room full of more than 1100 industry stakeholders.
