2016 has been another winning year for RPS clients in Queensland, with several of our client partners receiving industry recognition at the Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA) Mitchell Brandtman Awards for Excellence.
The Awards reward quality and innovation in the development industry across 12 categories, highlighting exceptional developments that offer inspiring new places for Queenslanders to live, work and play. Members of the RPS team had a great time attending the awards lunch at Brisbane’s City Hall on Friday, where they watched the following client projects pick up top industry gongs.
Brightwater by Stockland
Edging out stiff competition from across the state, Stockland’s Brightwater residential community took out the coveted UDIA Masterplanned Development award. RPS has provided urban design, planning and survey services for Brightwater since the project’s inception, helping Stockland transform Brightwater into thriving mixed-use community.
Botanica Residences by ARIA Property Group
The personification of luxury apartment living in South Brisbane, ARIA Property Group’s Botanica Residences was the 2016 UDIA award winner for High Density Development. RPS Landscape Architects have helped ARIA create a lush and luxurious subtropical landscape for residents and visitors to enjoy, featuring green walls that cascade down the building’s façade and subtropical courtyards that provide a calming retreat from the building’s inner-city surroundings.
Haven by Marquee
Marquee Development Partners’ Haven project at the Gasworks precinct in Newstead took out the Marketing Excellence category win. RPS' Landscape Architecture team is providing landscape design consultancy services for this landmark residential building which is due for completion next year.
Recognition for projects that shine in the Sunshine State
From masterfully planned communities on the Sunshine Coast, to luxuriously landscaped residential developments in Brisbane, RPS would like to congratulate Stockland, ARIA and Marquee on their UDIA award successes in 2016.
