The 2021 annual WA Property Awards were held last Friday at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre, presented by the Property Council of Australia and sponsored by Energy-Tec.

The prestigious awards recognise the success of the state’s property sector, and were expanded this year to include new categories celebrating the expertise and skill of industry leaders.

According to Sandra Brewer, Property Council WA Executive Director, 75 finalists were in contention to be crowned winners.

“The calibre of the nomination is a testament to the WA property industry and its commitment to the design, construction and management of exceptional places.”

Ms Brewer acknowledged that WA’s property industry is critical in shaping the future of the state, contributing $24.4 billion to Gross State Product and employing over 150,000 people.

“The awards recognise and applaud the people who are delivering great places for West Australians and make our state a world leading business and lifestyle location,” said Ms Brewer.

Award Winners

Presenting this year’s awards were WA Minister for Transport and Planning, Rita Saffioti, Chief Executive Officer of Landgate, Graeme Gammie, and Western Australian Planning Commission Chairman, David Caddy and event sponsors.

Taking home the award for Best Commercial Property, sponsored by Mizco Engineering, was Hames Sharley for the NEXTDC Perth Data Centre. The data centre spans over 10,000 square meters and is the city’s largest of its kind.

“This award recognises the importance of NEXTDC P2 as an important digital interconnectivity hub, commending both its functionality and design,” said Hames Sharley Project Lead, Dean Symington.

“I am incredibly proud of everyone who worked tirelessly in helping bring this project to life, balancing the security requirements of the data centre with the City’s desire for an open and transparent public interface.”

The Hawaiian Group was recognised as Best Commericial Fit out or Single Floor Refurbishment for its Hawaiian Office Show Suites, an innovative redesign of traditional office spaces.

For Best Large Retail Development, Scentre Group was awarded for their $350 million development of the state’s largest shopping centre, Westfield Carousel.

Mirvac and the Roe Highway Logistics park took home two awards each, winning Best Master Planned Community and Innovation, and Best Industrial and Sustainable Development respectively.
