ASSA ABLOY Entrance Systems Australia was the official sponsor of Architecture & Design’s Sustainability Awards 2019. The Sustainability Awards is one of the nation’s most respected awards programs, recognising and honouring sustainable building and design with emphasis on ecologically friendly and more efficient built environments.

“With ASSA ABLOY’s ongoing commitment to a more sustainable future, we’re delighted to be partnering with the Awards, sponsoring the Intelligent Building Category for this event. Sustainability is an integral part of product innovation at ASSA ABLOY. We work to ensure that newly designed products are as efficient as possible. The intention is to develop new product concepts that solve customer problems and create customer value, based on sustainable solutions and processes - it is a key driver throughout ASSA ABLOY’s value chain,” commented Mercedes Maniati, ASSA ABLOY national marketing manager.

“With environmentally conscious design and build at the forefront of most markets, we offer a complete range of access solutions that are energy efficient, compliant and also intelligent.”

The two finalists in the ASSA ABLOY-sponsored Intelligent Building category were South Eveleigh Building by Mirvac, and Welcome to the Jungle by CplusC Architectural Workshop.

Welcome to the Jungle won the Intelligent Building award. Designed to meet the evolving needs of a growing family in a sustainable way, the low maintenance house achieves its environmental objectives without sacrificing the comforts offered by good architecture.
