UDIA Victoria Award for Excellence – Seniors’ Living
This may involve one or two winning entries. While one will be for seniors living (see below) the other will recognise excellence in those projects targeted at a specific niche market such as seniors’ living, student accommodation or tourist-based developments. The number of dwellings, lots or other elements is not prescribed but the project must display high standards in all relevant aspects of the purpose for which it is intended.
Entries are not limited to residential projects and may include aged care. The project needs to be completed to proceed to National.
The winner of this award is eligible for nomination into the UDIA National Awards. If nominated, you will be required to complete the UDIA National Awards criteria documentation.
Sub Category – Seniors’ Living
The National Awards category under Special Purpose Living is specific to Seniors’ Living. Projects entered in this category must provide attention to the needs of residents who have retired or are approaching retirement age, and present high standard of overall design, create a sense of place, and have regard for an energy and water efficient lifestyle and may provide aged care. Nominations are not exclusive to residential purposes and may include aged care.
Completion Criteria for UDIA Judging
To adequately judge an entry for the UDIA Awards for Excellence Program, entrants must provide to the Judging Panel sufficient evidence of the completion of a significant part of the project.
For example, single stage projects must demonstrate practical completion and sold or available for sale. Multistage projects must have at least one full stage completed and sold or available for sale, and other stages under development.
