Slattery is delighted to congratulate Peter Elliott Architecture + Urban Design, Architect for the Parliament of Victoria Members’ Annexe for winning five awards at the 2019 Victoria Architecture Awards. The accolades included the prestigious Melbourne Prize and the Victorian Architecture Medal, the project also won The Joseph Reed Award for Urban Design, The William Wardell Award for Public Architecture and The Allan and Beth Coldicutt Award for Sustainable Architecture.
An extraordinary project that Rosemary Burne, Jury Chair for Public Architecture and the Chair of Juries for the entire state awards program notes—was the clear result of a successful collaborative relationship between a skilled architect, an intelligent client, dedicated consultants and a skilled contractor. ‘The project has been thoughtfully conceived from all design aspects – including urban design, heritage, sustainability, interiors and landscape,’ says Burne.
‘The highly-considered design approach is founded upon a strong commitment by the client to addressing the significance and sensitivity of this project and its context. A confident contribution to public architecture, the Parliament of Victoria Members’ Annexe has been executed with long-term decision making at the forefront. This is a legacy project that will serve many generations of Victorians to come.’ Slattery is proud to have provided cost management on this excellent piece of architecture.
Slattery is also thrilled to see Prahran High School by Gray Puksand receive a commendation for Educational Architecture, and Port of Sale by FJMT for Public Architecture; both projects Slattery has provided cost advisory and management services to.
