AWARDS SHINE LIGHT ON TALENT
This year’s 2017 Brisbane Housing & Construction Awards showcased exceptional innovation, workmanship and professionalism.
The most coveted award, the 2017 Brisbane House of the Year, went to Mancorp Quality Homes for its luxurious Bribie Island abode.
Master Builders executive officer Grant Galvin said spread over two blocks of land and spanning three levels, the spectacular island home was all about the wow factor.
The main living, dining and kitchen areas boast uninterrupted views of Pumicestone Passage and the Glass House Mountains, while the guest wing contains four villas, each with an ensuite and kitchenette.
“Complete with all the trimmings, the quality of finishings and attention to detail found around every corner is second to none,” Mr Galvin said.
“It is also functional, with a state-of-the-art theatre, a fully-stocked wine cellar constructed from custom-made timber joinery and a butler’s pantry and scullery.
“Mancorp Quality Homes has created a true masterpiece and are the very deserving winners of our 2017 Brisbane House of the Year.”
Mancorp also won the award for 2017 Brisbane Individual Home over $2 million.
The other highly contested and sought-after residential building award is the 2017 Brisbane President’s Award which recognises quality and value for money.
This year it went to Plantation Homes for its work on the Retreat Nouveau Q1 at Yarrabilba — a contemporary home designed for relaxation.
Mr Galvin said it boasted flexibility for growing families, generous living spaces and practical, yet tasteful touches.
“It offers luxurious and superior features at an affordable price tag, making it a dream home many buyers can aspire to,” he said.
Plantation Homes also took out the 2017 Brisbane Display Home awards in the categories for $251,000-$350,000, $451,000-$550,000, and over $551,000.
