"Cardno has played a fundamental role in designing and building Greater Springfield to ensure it is an affordable, innovative and sustainable place to live," Jamie Alonso said.

"I am incredibly proud of our team who has partnered with Springfield City Group for 20 years and have contributed to this award-winning project."

Adding to the significance of this award, SCG needed to win both the State and then National UDIA Award in order to qualify as a finalist.

Since 2000, the Cardno team has provided the expertise and guidance to deliver infrastructure and planning for Australia's first master-planned municipality since Canberra almost a century earlier.
