SCA (NSW) President Mr Chris Duggan said that this year’s entrants showed that the NSW strata sector has been on an upward trajectory since the new legislation was introduced in 2016 and through the immense competition within the industry itself.

“The strata sector has seen an increase in not just properties with the apartment boom around NSW but also in the new and talented people entering into the industry and developing as professionals,” Mr Duggan said.

“One of the things we are most proud of is the recognition of the outstanding performance of women at the awards. Four women scooped the pool of individual awards on the night. We have also grown the opportunity for strata owners to celebrate their successes with the Strata Community Environmental & Engagement Award.

“This year’s winner, an apartment building in Woolloomooloo showed innovation and determination when it came to reducing their energy consumption, making changes and reaping the rewards that mean dollars in owners pockets and not the coffers of the big energy providers.”

“The independent judging panel made up of academics and industry stakeholders commented that there was a significant number of excellent, high quality submissions and that they get better each year. Scoring in some categories was extremely difficult with scores very close.

“They also said it was great to see the quality and breadth in the industry with high achieving young strata managers,” Mr Duggan concluded.
