Aurecon leaders join property industry committees to help shape sector’s new COVID-normal
Aurecon appointees collaborate with the Property Council of Australia, to create a thriving and prosperous industry in Australia’s property sector.
10 March 2021 – Aurecon leaders will help to shape the future of Australia’s property industry, following their appointment to 13 Property Council of Australia committees at a time when the sector is showing signs of returning to pre-COVID levels.
Over the next two years, the 13 elected leaders, spanning multiple states and markets, will provide expertise to the Property Council of Australia, Australia’s largest industry and employer, contributing 13 per cent of Australia’s GDP at AUD202.9 billion and supporting 1.4 million jobs. These appointments supersede last round’s selection of nine Aurecon leaders.
“The disruption of COVID-19 has allowed many employees to embrace working from home, and moving forward, there is a growing need for the workplace to reflect this new way of working,” said Tim Spies, Managing Director, Built Environment – ANZ, Aurecon.
“The workplace of the future is changing before our eyes and the property industry will need to provide an appropriate approach to meet the demands of a COVID-normal society as employees balance working from home and working at their offices.”

Shaping the new-normal in 2021
During their tenure, the appointees will collaborate with the Property Council of Australia, and leaders from other industry organisations, on policy, advocacy, events, industry research, professional development and awards programmes, to create a thriving and prosperous industry, jobs and strong communities that meet current and future societal demands.
“The Property Council of Australia committees will act as an important gateway between the council and the broader property industry as we navigate through this unique time. Committee members will contribute their expertise to drive positive change in how buildings of the future and our built environment as a whole will develop into the future,” Spies said.
“The committees are essential to the Property Council of Australia’s work by supporting a variety of initiatives. They will also help to provide opportunities for collaboration between industry operators. We wish our leaders luck as they contribute to the important work of the Property Council of Australia and help to shape a COVID-normal property sector in Australia,” Spies said.
