First and foremost, we see awards as an incentive for even greater quality, because a healthy dose of competition motivates us to stay on the ball and always be one step ahead. In addition, awards are an expression of special appreciation and recognition of the work of the S+B team.
Our personal highlights include, in particular, the numerous LEED certifications and the REAL ESTATE BRAND AWARD, which we have won four times in a row.
6 x LEED Platinum, 3 x LEED Gold and more to come!
The acronym LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design and aims to strengthen and promote the performance of sustainable buildings. The internationally best-known system for the assessment and certification of buildings helps us as planners and implementers to better understand and optimise the level of environmental impact and its scope. This certification is also demanded and appreciated by our business partners.
We are particularly proud to have recognised the value of sustainable construction and LEED certification at an especially early stage. We already realised the first Gold and Platinum awarded projects before the Green Building Rating System™ achieved its high profile in Europe.

2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021: We remain strong!
The REAL ESTATE BRAND AWARD is one of the most important recognitions in the European real estate industry. In the annual survey by the European Real Estate Brand Institute, the top players in the industry are examined for their brand potential. This award places great emphasis on the perceived positioning of a company in the market. This is done, among other things, through sector-specific assessment criteria (KPIs) and the detailed evaluation of relevant marketing data.
The rigorous testing procedure and the intense competition make us particularly proud to have been awarded "Diamond" in the category "Strongest Brand Austria Developers" five times in a row!

Cheers to the best in the business!
In 2019, our Executive Board member Wolfdieter Jarisch was awarded "Caesar" in the category of "Property Developer". The award, which has been presented since 2006, is regarded as the highest recognition in the Austrian real estate industry – the winner is chosen by a committee of people whose members are all active members of the industry, association representatives, university rectors and representatives of the press. The "Caesar" is chosen from a shortlist of three in a secret and notarially supervised election, thus honouring industry leaders with outstanding achievements.
On 19.9.2019, the orange statuette was presented at an exclusive gala at the Schönbrunn Palace Theatre.

Award for outstanding Austrian real estate projects
In 2006, the S+B Group was awarded the prize for the most outstanding Austrian real estate project for the City Point project. DIVA awarded owners and project developers who bring courageous and visionary overall concepts and projects from idea to realisation. The jury – consisting of experts and artists – assessed the innovation, economic efficiency, architecture, marketing and rental success of the property.
Wolfdieter Jarisch accepted the bronze sculpture created by artist Bernd Fasching at the Skybar (Vienna) on 7.11.2006. The project with a net floor area of 30,000 m² was the largest inner-city office project at the time. The S+B Group acted as both general contractor and project developer for the project, which was purchased in 2004 and completed in 2006. The building, which is centrally located at the "Wien Mitte" transport hub, was already fully let to Immofinanz during the completion phase.
From 2002 to 2021, the Diva Award was sponsored annually by Immobilien Magazin in cooperation with the consulting firm Diva Consult.
