SAS International the first manufacturer to sponsor category at Property Council of Australia awards
Global manufacturer of interior fit-out solutions SAS International is the first manufacturer ever to be sponsoring an award category at this year’s Property Council of Australia’s Innovation & Excellence Awards 2014. This signals its intention for ongoing commitment to the Australian market as it sets up a base in Sydney.
The manufacturer of interior fit-out solutions will be sponsoring the Award category for Best Office Development. Andrew Jackson, Director at SAS International, explained; “Becoming a sponsor of these awards and supporting the Property Council of Australia was a natural fit for us as SAS International works as a partner, around the world, to help building owners and tenants get maximum long-term value from their interior fit-out. Whether a commercial office refurbishment or a new build our metal solutions provide building tenants with an interior which balances durability, acoustic performance, mechanical & electrical integration and aesthetics helping a building stand out from the crowd.”
The Best Office Development award recognises and publicly rewards the efficient use of capital in a new or refurbished office development. Lend Lease’s $500 million Darling Quarter and Commonwealth Bank Place development in Sydney was the winner of the Best Office Development category last year. SAS International’s perforated metal ceiling panels were installed throughout the buildings to help achieve correct air flow from the chilled beams.
Peter Verwer, Chief Executive, Property Council of Australia commented;
“SAS International is the first interior product manufacturer to sponsor a category at the Property Council of Australia’s Innovation & Excellence Awards. They will be sponsoring the Best Office Development award this year. These are significant awards which showcase the industry’s creativity, resilience and economic contribution to the community.”
Meeting performance and aesthetic demands of commercial offices across the world, SAS International’s range of interior products includes metal ceiling systems and architectural metalwork. In new build or refurbishment projects SAS International’s metal ceiling systems allow service integration including lighting and cooling.
The Innovation and Excellence Awards promote and celebrate innovation and leading practice within the property development and investment industries. The 2014 Innovation & Excellence Awards Gala Dinner will be held on 17th May 2014 at the Star Event Centre in Sydney.
The Property Council of Australia is the leading advocate for Australia’s $600 billion property industry. Members of the Property Council of Australia include major investors, property owners and developers, as well as the industry’s professional service and trade providers.
