The UDI Awards for Excellence celebrate the outstanding accomplishments of developers who had the vision to take our cities, and the people who live and work in them into the future.

We honour the top achievers whose projects have made an exceptional impact on our communities and the urban landscape.

The jury will consider the following criteria:

  • Built form
  • Public, community, and amenity spaces
  • Sustainability
  • Sense of place and liveability
  • Project success
  • Financially viable

The next UDI Awards will take place November 2018.

For UDI Awards inquiries contact Ginny Normandeau at gnormandeau@udi.org or call 604-661-3036

Eligibility and FAQs

  • I am a member (architect ie) but the developer of the project is not a member. Is the project eligible to enter?

    No, the developer of the project must be a UDI member.

  • I am a member (developer) but some of the development team are not members (architect, engineer, ie). Can they enter the project on my behalf?

    Yes, providing the developer gives consent.

  • Is the project team recognized at the ceremony?

    Although the Award goes to the developer of the project, members of the project team will be formally recognized at the event.
