At last years Environment Institute of Australia and New Zealand Conference (EIANZ) Architectural Projects Director, Jennifer Hill, presented a paper on Heritage and Sustainability. 

The paper discussed three projects, all were recipients of awards.

New Acton, Canberra, is a precinct of commercial offices, cinemas, restaurants, residential, apartments and two hotels on the site of the former Acton Hotel. In 2015 New Acton was named the winner of the AIA, ACT, Heritage Conservation & Interiors Award. 

The former Bushells Tea Company warehouse, 88 George Street Sydney, is part of the waterfront warehouse precinct. Its within close proximity to Sydney harbour, the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. The building was converted from a warehouse to office spaces in 1984 and much of the original interior was lost.

It was the first heritage building in NSW to be awarded a 5-star Green Star rating.

Yarrangobilly Caves House resides in the Kosciusko National Park. Yarrangobilly is one of only three known historic Caves House complexes still existing in Australia. It is one of the earliest examples of government tourist facilities. It was the winner of the AIA Heritage Conservation Architecture Award in 2014 for restoration.
