Congratulations to our clients Landcorp and Noahs Rosehill Waters who both took home awards at the Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA) WA Awards for Excellence 2017. Urbis is incredibly proud to be a part of these two best-practice projects. 

The UDIA WA Awards for Excellence showcase the best the state has to offer in contemporary urban design and development. They acknowledge and celebrate WA talent and innovation, and provide a platform for projects that both challenge and inspire.

WGV at White Gum Valley is a modern, innovative sustainable residential development .

LandCorp won the Sustainable Urban Development and Urban Water Excellence awards for WGV @ White Gum Valley

LandCorp engaged Urbis to help it transform the site, 2 kilometres east of Fremantle’s city centre, into an urban village that offers the community a large variety of medium density housing options. Urbis’ work on the 2 hectare infill site involved preparing a structure plan and development controls, and subdividing the land.

Through community engagement and a sensitive approach to design and planning, Urbis helped LandCorp address local concerns while also meeting its obligations under the state’s planning policy directions, which focus on housing affordability, urban consolidation and sustainable development. 

WGV also won the Australia Award for Urban Design.

Rosehill Waters will be a carefully-planned new development overlooking the lovely Helena River Foreshore at South Guildford.

The Noahs Rosehill Waters team won the EnviroDevelopment Chairman’s Choice Award for the Rosehill Waters Project at South Guildford. 

Rosehill Waters will be an innovative and sustainable development, featuring design excellence and significant environmental and community benefits. Retaining and improving the site’s natural features and focusing on residents’ needs has made sure that Rosehill Waters becomes home to a friendly, welcoming community.

Rosehill Waters was the first private development in Western Australia to be awarded a six-leaf accreditation under Urban Institute of Australia’s (UDIA) EnviroDevelopment system.
