Engineering and design firm, and LSAA member, Arup has again triumphed with its work on the National Aquatics Centre, aka the Water Cube. For two years running Arup has received the ACEA's top prize, with the Water Cube announced as Project of the Year at the 2008 Association of Consulting Engineers Australia (ACEA) Awards for Excellence. 

The Water Cube also won the ACEA's Gold Award for International/ Export Projects. These prestigious awards are the latest accolades in a consistent stream of recognition this iconic building is receiving, coming just days after it was awarded the Sir William Hudson Award, the highest honour at the Australian Engineering Excellence Awards.
