Enduring Excellence: Villawood Properties Honoured at UDIA Awards 2018
Villawood Properties has again been recognised by the Urban Development Institute of Australia’s annual Awards for Excellence.
Villawood Properties’ flagship Armstrong Mount Duneed community was bestowed with the UDIA Award for Community Engagement Excellence, while the project’s landscape architect, Barry Murphy, won the highly-coveted UDIA Judge’s award. Villawood Properties Executive Director, Tony Johnson, was given the surprise – but much deserved – honour of the UDIA’s Lifetime Achievement Award.
The Community Engagement Award, granted in recognition of leadership and innovation in services and social infrastructure in residential projects, follows Armstrong’s win last year in the UDIA’s Best Masterplanned Community. Judges’ favourite, Barry Murphy, was heavily involved in the design of the sumptuous wetlands and streetscapes full of character at the award-winning community.
The UDIA’s recognition caps a stellar year of growth for the company and takes the Villawood stable’s tally of major development awards in the past two decades into its twenties.
