CBRE’s QV1 Management Team in Perth has been named Facilities Management Team of the Year at the 2023 RICS Awards Australia.  

QV1 is a 43-storey premium office tower located at 250 St Georges Terrace in the Perth CBD. 

The RICS Awards showcase the most inspirational initiatives and developments in land, real estate, construction, and infrastructure, recognising the outstanding achievements of market-leading professionals.  

The award recognises the team's demonstrated commitment to prioristising innovation, industry-leading sustainability outcomes and ensuring user satisfaction through the management of major capital expenditure projects.  

The team has been at the forefront of planning and futureproofing the building, which was completed in 1991, with a series of multimillion-dollar refurbishments over the past six years. This has included the completion of hotel-quality end-of-trip facilities, premium conference and business lounge facilities, an open and collaborative lobby and a connected streetscape. 

QV1 Head of Operations Joe D’Alessandro said the award was a testament to the team’s focus on providing a considered and people-focused precinct.  

“This award represents a significant achievement and landmark for our team, who are dedicated to integrating sustainability, wellbeing and customer satisfaction into every decision,” Mr D’Alessandro said.   

“Our team vision remains to provide an environment where people and businesses thrive. We are all committed to that goal and to receive this award is recognition that we are not only preserving the legacy of the iconic QV1 tower – but bringing it into a new age to support the future of work.”
