UDIA Awards for Excellence
The UDIA (Urban Development Institute of Australia) has developed the Awards for Excellence Programme in order to recognise excellence and innovation in the urban development industry. The programme is one of Australia's most respected and valued, and the prestigious awards are highly sought-after.
Winner - 2013 UDIA WA Award for Urban Water Excellence
Australand's commitment to environmental management was acknowledged after Port Coogee received the Urban Water Excellence Award at the 2013 UDIA WA State Awards for Excellence.
The Port Coogee team turned the challenge of nutrient-enriched groundwater into an opportunity, by intercepting the groundwater and using it for watering public open spaces and residential gardens. This solution not only reduced the risk of poor water quality and algal blooms in the marina, it reduced potable water consumption in the residential development.
Judges also cited Port Coogee's water sensitive landscaping, stormwater infiltration and in-house water efficiency.
Winner - 2012 UDIA National Awards for Excellence
Following on from our three WA awards in 2011, Australand and Port Coogee were proud to also take top honours at the 2012 UDIA National Awards for Excellence. As added recognition for our outstanding commitment to the local industry, Port Coogee was the only award winner from Western Australia. Winners were announced at the national UDIA Conference held in Perth in March. These national awards recognise more than a decade of comprehensive planning and extensive remedial works by Australand to transform the site into a prestigious and environmentally sustainable waterfront residential address. Judges praised the estate's level of town planning detail and its significance to the future of Perth's coastal waterfront.

Winner - 2013 Property Council of Australia's National Innovation and Excellence Awards
Australand received top honours for its landmark Port Coogee coastal marina development at the 2013 Property Council of Australia's National Innovation and Excellence Awards, winning the national award for 'Best Master Planned Community'.
As the only Western Australian developer to be awarded, Australand WA's General Manager Tony Perrin said it was an honour to see Port Coogee recognised nationally as a truly unique development.
"This award validates the creative and visionary thinking that began 20 years ago, and oversaw the transformation of the Coogee coastline into the impressive integrated community and environmentally sensitive coastal marina we see today."
Mr Perrin said The Property Council of Australia commented "the visionary project was set to become one of Australia's iconic seafront villages".
