BDAV Building Design Awards
The Building Designers Association of Victoria introduced an annual Building Design Awards competition in 1996 to showcase the talents and expertise of building designers, and to encourage higher standards of excellence in design. 2017 celebrates the 22nd year of the BDAV Design Awards, and the judges continue to be impressed with the standard of entries, reflecting the high level of quality design being offered by design professionals to consumers.
The Awards aim to profile excellence in building design, as well as profiling the importance of the building design profession to both the building industry and to the broader community. BDAV Members play an important role in providing the public with building designs that fulfil many and varied criteria.
The competition is open to all building designers who are Full Members of the BDAV and who are either Registered Building Practitioners or Registered Architects at the closing date of the competition.
The only exception is entrants in the Student Category. Such entrants must be studying for the Advanced Diploma of Building Design (Architectural) at a recognised TAFE institution at the closing date of the competition.
The winners of the 2016 BDAV Building Design Awards were announced at the BDAV's Annual Dinner on Saturday, 30 July 2016. For details, CLICK HERE.
The BDAV has been publishing an annual consumer-focussed Awards magazine since 2006, which profiles the winners, entrants, and sponsors in the BDAV's annual Awards competition. This very popular magazine has a strong following by Victoria's discerning public who are looking to build or renovate their home.
