Held by the National Association of Building Designers (NABD), the National Building Design Awards will be presented at Sea World Resort on the Gold Coast on Saturday 1 October.
The Awards promote and recognise excellence in building design across the country in the areas of residential, interior, heritage conservation, energy-efficiency, commercial and industrial design.
For the second year, internationally-renowned editor of Vogue Living Australia and television personality Neale Whitaker will host the National Building Design Award
The NABD was formed as a unified peak body for Australia’s building designers, to help set the benchmark for best practice within the building design industry design.
Longstanding supporter of the Australian building design industry and BDAQ President Tamica Lewis said she was thrilled with the calibre of this year’s nominees.
“This year’s cohort of building designers have once again exceeded my expectations – as well as those of the judges – and raised the standard of exceptional building design to the next level,” Ms Lewis said.
“It’s amazing to see the creativity, passion and commitment that has gone into each and every one of this year’s projects – from residential, interior, sustainable, and heritage conservations through to non-residential design projects including commercial, industrial and public buildings.
“I am also excited to announce that in partnership with this year’s major awards partner James Hardie, we will be launching a brand new award – James Hardie Dream Designer Award – to encourage innovative design and living.”
Twenty awards will be presented at the National Building Design Awards including ‘Best New Residential Design’, ‘Best Heritage Design’, ‘Best Sustainable Design’ and ‘National Building Design of the Year’.
