Quintessential Equity named 2019 Property Fund of the Year second year running
Quintessential Equity is proud to have been named the 2019 Property Fund of the Year at the RICS Oceania Awards, picking up the accolade for a second year in a row.
The awards are held every year in major cities around the world to recognise world-class achievements and demonstrate the upholding of the highest standards of professionalism and ethics by individuals and teams.
Hosted this year by RICS President Chris Brook and comedian Tommy Little, the evening served to highlight the inspirational initiatives and developments in land, real estate, construction and infrastructure this year.
The Property Fund of the Year award was based on the criteria of outstanding professionalism, teamwork, outcomes, innovation and sustainability.
The winning entry was also supported by testimonials from a range of partners including engineers, tenants and investors, who have worked in collaboration with Quintessential Equity.
In Geelong, Quintessential Equity helped deliver a world-class office building for WorkSafe Victoria at 1 Malop Street. At the global forefront of sustainability and wellbeing, the project brings social, economic and environmental benefits to the region.
Peter Murenu, Technical Director at engineering consultants Aurecon Australia, says the project was an example of what can be achieved through collaboration.
“Quintessential Equity set itself apart by their collaborative approach and their willingness to push the boundaries on energy and WELL targets.
“From the outset, Quintessential Equity’s directors were adamant that the building would achieve excellent sustainability and energy outcomes,” he said.
While Quintessential Equity’s now-sold Canberra asset at 14 Moore Street, delivered excellent investor returns thanks to an innovative leasing strategy and a commitment to our ‘love the tenant’ philosophy.
The prestigious award was accepted by Shane Quinn on behalf of the Quintessential Equity team at a dinner at the Plaza Ballroom in Melbourne on Thursday night.
Quintessential Equity’s Chief Executive Officer, Russell Bullen, says the award is a tangible recognition of the team’s focus on achieving strong social, environmental and financial outcomes.
“At Quintessential Equity we’re not just driven by delivering strong returns for our investors.
“We’re also passionate about providing world-class office spaces that look after the tenant, the community and the environment. We’re delighted with this award as it recognises the contributions we make in all these areas.”
