Aurecon wins Gold at 2020 Good Design Awards

Aurecon’s digital tool siteLab® was named a Good Design Award Gold Winner in the Digital Design Apps and Software category.

14 September 2020 – International engineering, design and advisory company Aurecon won three 2020 Good Design Awards presented by Good Design Australia during Good Design Week.

Australia’s Good Design Awards program is one of the oldest and most prestigious international design awards in the world. It is recognised by the World Design Organization (WDO) as Australia’s peak international design endorsement program. This year, the program attracted 835 Entries across 11 design disciplines and 35 categories, all centred around one uniting purpose: GOOD DESIGN FOR A BETTER WORLD.

Aurecon’s digital tool siteLab® was named a Good Design Award Gold Winner in the Digital Design Apps and Software category. siteLab® is a powerful, interactive software tool that acts as a “digital canvas” for users to visualise, experience and interact with all engineering elements of a rich built environment or infrastructure design in real-time, which enables quicker, smarter and more cost-effective design decision making.

Aurecon Chief Digital Officer, Dr. Andrew Maher said that "siteLab® was built from the ground up to offer clients a unique perspective. Following significant research and development, siteLab® has become Aurecon’s enterprise design visualisation solution and has been effectively deployed for more than 200 projects, including some of the largest infrastructure builds in Australia."

The Good Design Awards Jury commended the outstanding innovation of siteLab®, saying it will only continue to grow in its positive impact. The Jury noted that siteLab® was “a brilliant project that enables collaboration and reduces knowledge gaps between stakeholders. A problem well articulated a visualisation solution well-conceived and really nicely executed.”

Aurecon was also named Good Design Award winners for its Powerlink 2050 Network Vision entry in the Design Strategy Category and Project Gilghi entry in the Social Impact Category.

Using its Design to innovate tools, Aurecon co-created a vision for Queensland electricity network operator and owner, Powerlink, to help guide it into the next 30 years.

Project Gilghi, a hybrid off-grid containerised water treatment plant developed by Aurecon and Ampcontrol, is a breakthrough design providing remote communities with quality potable water.

In July, siteLab® also won Gold in the Melbourne Design Awards 2020, which recognises the role of design in enriching the human experience.

As the founding sponsor of the category, Aurecon also congratulates all the winners of the Engineering Design category.

In 2018, Aurecon partnered with Good Design Australia to launch the Engineering Design category in the awards program to reward exemplar engineering design projects across the country and recognise the role that good design plays in bringing unique engineering design solutions to life.
