2017 South Australian Spatial Excellence Awards Winners Announced

The 2017 Asia Pacific Spatial Excellence Awards South Australia (APSEA-SA) were celebrated at a gala dinner at the Adelaide Convention Centre on Friday the 11th August. This annual event is an opportunity to acknowledge the outstanding achievements of individuals and organisations advancing our industry in South Australia. Delicious food, great wine and the glorious surroundings of the evolving Adelaide Riverbank precinct contributed to a very successful evening.

On behalf of the SIBA|GITA Board and staff we would like to thank everyone who submitted or nominated for awards, but most importantly we congratulate all the Industry and Individual winners at the APSEA-SA 2017 for their outstanding submissions.

Below are the names of all the winner’s.

We also have included the closing dates and links to the Spatial Excellence Awards  that are still open for submissions. We strongly encourage you and your company to enter a project.
