We are proud to announce that EY Centre, 200 George Street has received global recognition by winning the construction category at the Council of Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat Awards (CTBUH) in Chicago, USA on Friday.
CTBUH is a world leading group for professionals focused on the inception, design, construction, and operation of tall buildings and future cities across the globe. The awards recognise projects that have made extraordinary contributions to the advancement of tall buildings and the urban environment, and that achieve sustainability at the highest and broadest level.
EY Centre was awarded excellence in construction in a tall building project, recognised for the building’s defining feature - its pioneering golden façade, achieved through the world-first use of a closed cavity façade system on a high rise commercial tower.
Mirvac’s National Construction Director, Jason Vieusseux, said, "Mirvac is thrilled to have received global recognition for EY Centre, 200 George Street by winning the construction category at the Council of Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat Awards.

By working with our partners, including architects Francis-Jones Morehen Thorp and workplace advisory firm Davenport Campbell, we were able to build a cutting-edge workplace with world-leading technology and innovative design. We are proud and delighted to have delivered a building that both enriches its communities and raises the bar for future workplaces in Australia.”
