ACT office projects up for a gong

johnboy 14 February 2013 3

The Property Council has announced the ACT’s nominees for the 2013 Property Council of Australia / Rider Levett Bucknall Innovation and Excellence Awards:

“These three projects demonstrate the ACT property industry’s commitment to excellence,” says ACT Executive Director of the Property Council of Australia, Catherine Carter.

“Two of the nominees have been recognised for breathing new life into ageing landmarks, through the modernisation of the RM Hope Building on King’s Avenue, and the adaptive re-use of Juliana House in Woden.

“The third nominee is the state-of-the-art sustainable headquarters of the Department of Health and Ageing’s Sirius Building in Woden,” Ms Carter explains.

“All finalists are in the running for the property industry’s coveted Gold Logie – the Australian Development of the Year award.”

Not the Oscar mind you, the Logie.

Ah yes – the development industry patting itself on the back. Their version of the Oscars.

Experience says that it’s the most screwed-up projects that win awards. I think it’s about PR and papering over the cracks.

“adaptive re-use of Juliana House” is a fancy schmancy way of saying “re-fit”, right? Sounds hard to screw up, so if they have, in fact managed to screw it up then they probably do deserve some kind of award.
A Gold Loogie seems apt.

The Juliana House in Woden is still being gutted. How can they get an award for something that hasn’t even been done yet?
