2016 NSW Chapter Inaugural Awards

The inaugural Learning Environments NSW Chapter Awards were announced at an event held at St Scholastica’s, Glebe on Thursday 15th December.

The aim of these awards is to enhance the profile of design and building development as it applies to all educational facilities across the state and to reflect the philosophy of the organisation, which is to innovate and improve the places where people learn.
