A message from the Executive Director

Once again, the Institute was thrilled to be involved in the Architecture with Pride float and march for 2024 Mardi Gras. Much gratitude to all those who organised, co-ordinated and participated in the event – an amazing and colourful display of pride, love, inclusion and diversity – values we hold dear at the Institute.

Our Student Awards took place on Friday evening. If the extraordinary talent of the students this year is any indication, the future of our profession is in good hands. Congratulations to all award winners, and those who entered the awards, and also to our event partners, Mirvac Design and BatesSmart.

We recently met with Minister for Building, Anoulack Chanthivong, to discuss the establishment of the new Building Commission NSW and the role of our profession as the NSW Building Bill is due for draft release.

Tickets are now on sale for our Building Commission NSW event on Tuesday, 12 March 2024. David Chandler, NSW Building Commissioner will join us along with his audit team for an update and Q&A discussion on the building reforms. This is your chance to have your questions answered. We encourage you to come along.

Our submissions on the Transport Oriented Development Program SEPP and the Low and midrise Housing EIE are now complete. Thank you to our expert members for providing their expertise and to our national policy and advocacy team for their assistance.

Meetings have been underway with the GANSW team as the NSW Pattern Book comes together. We will update members as more detail comes to light.

Tickets are selling fast for our NSW Awards Night on Friday, 28 June 2024 at the City Recital Hall. It is going to be a fantastic celebration of our talented profession. We look forward to seeing you there.
