Awards recog­nise home-build­ing ex­cel­lence in Pil­bara

Pilbara News - - Property - Louise Alling­ham

The Hous­ing In­dus­try As­so­ci­a­tion an­nounced the win­ners and fi­nal­ists of the North West Hous­ing Awards at a cer­e­mony early last month in Broome with three Pil­bara prop­er­ties and busi­nesses com­ing out win­ners.

Peb­ble Beach Con­struc­tions took home three awards for a home they built on the Ex­mouth ma­rina.

The Ex­mouth-based com­pany took home the award for cus­tom-built home ($650,001-$750,000), framed hous­ing ($600,001-$800,000) and framed home of the year.

Kar­ratha-based L E Roberts Build­ing De­sign won res­i­den­tial build­ing de­signer of the year for the third con­sec­u­tive year.

L E Roberts Build­ing De­sign di­rec­tor Lawrence Roberts said win­ning the award was quite an achieve­ment.

“This year the re­gion was the en­tire North­west, which in­cluded homes on the canals in Ex­mouth, and ex­tend­ing through homes in Onslow, the Pil­bara and the Kim­ber­ley,” he said.

“A subur­ban Kar­ratha home win­ning against more glam­orous ar­eas was very re­ward­ing.”

L E Roberts Build­ing de­sign has been of­fer­ing ar­chi­tec­tural de­sign and doc­u­men­ta­tion ser­vices to Kar­ratha and sur­round­ing ar­eas for more than 26 years.

DA Burke Builders won four awards in­clud­ing cus­tom-built home ($750,000 and over), framed hous­ing ($400,001-$600,000) and in­no­va­tion in hous­ing project of the year for their project in Onslow as well as ex­cel­lence in ser­vice.

Although based in Man­durah, DA Burke Builders used to have a per­ma­nent work­force in Onslow and con­tinue to pro­vide their ser­vices to Pil­bara clients.

DA Burke Builders manger Clay­ton Burke said he was “pretty stoked” about the wins, es­pe­cially the ex­cel­lence in ser­vice award.

“At the end of the day that’s prob­a­bly the big­gest one for us — we’re noth­ing un­less our cus­tomers are happy,” he said.
