This year’s Master Builders Queens­land Hous­ing and Con­struc­tion Awards paid homage to the best in the state’s build­ing and con­struc­tion in­dus­try.

More than 500 guests gath­ered at Bris­bane City Hall to cel­e­brate and recog­nise the most out­stand­ing achieve­ments in Queens­land build­ing across 58 cat­e­gories.

Master Builders’ chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Grant Galvin said for those look­ing to buy a home right now, Plan­ta­tion Homes’ Re­treat Nou­veau Q1 at Yarra­bilba won the 2017 Queens­land Pres­i­dent’s Award, which ac­knowl­edged an ex­tra­or­di­nary home ev­ery­day Queens­lan­ders could as­pire to.

“A con­tem­po­rary home de­signed for re­lax­ation, it boasts flex­i­bil­ity for grow­ing fam­i­lies, gen­er­ous liv­ing spa­ces and prac­ti­cal, yet taste­ful touches,” he said.

“And it of­fers lux­u­ri­ous and su­pe­rior fea­tures at an af­ford­able price tag, mak­ing it a dream home many buy­ers can as­pire to.”

Mr Galvin said they had hun­dreds of en­trants from across Queens­land for the awards, mak­ing choos­ing the win­ners a tough call.

“The 2017 Queens­land House of the Year went to Man­corp Qual­ity Homes for their lux­u­ri­ous Bri­bie Is­land abode,” he said.

“Spread over two blocks of land and three lev­els, this spec­tac­u­lar is­land home is all about the ‘wow’ fac­tor. The main liv­ing, din­ing and kitchen ar­eas boast un­in­ter­rupted views of Pu­mice­s­tone Pas­sage and the Glass House Moun­tains.

“The guest wing con­tains four vil­las, each with their own en­suite and kitch­enette.

“Com­plete with all the trim­mings, the qual­ity of fin­ishes and at­ten­tion to de­tail found around ev­ery cor­ner is sec­ond-to-none.”

Mr Galvin said the awards also pro­vided an op­por­tu­nity to recog­nise tal­ent.

“I’d like to con­grat­u­late all 58 win­ners, and wish them the best of luck as a se­lec­tion of win­ners is put for­ward to com­pete against the best from each state in their re­spec­tive cat­e­gories at the Na­tional Ex­cel­lence in Build­ing and Con­struc­tion Awards,” he said.

“So whether you are about to un­der­take a mi­nor ren­o­va­tion or build your dream home, use the Master Builders on­line search fa­cil­ity which pro­vides de­tails of prop­erly li­cenced con­trac­tors who match your spec­i­fied cri­te­ria.”
