The 2019 SAPOA property developments awards for innovative excellence – Winners Announcement

The winners in the 2019 installment of the SAPOA Property Development Awards for Innovative Excellence were announced at the gala dinner and awards evening of the 2019 SAPOA Convention & Property Exhibition on Thursday 20 June 2019.

The awards recognise the remarkable work done by property owners, designers, engineers, artists and visionaries, and a total of 47 entries were received across the various categories.

According to committee chairperson, Zinon Marinakos, although the convention is hailed as the most prestigious networking event on South Africa’s built environment calendar, this year commands more prominence as a milestone for the industry across the country and beyond. “The Judges have reviewed each submission per category based on the evaluation criteria. Over and above the category winners, there were also overall awards, which includes the Transformation award, Heritage award, Overall Green Award and The Overall Winner for 2019, which was awarded to the Discovery Joint Venture” he said.
