Last week was busy for many in the prop­erty in­dus­try, with three award events recog­nis­ing de­vel­op­ers, builders, de­sign­ers and ar­chi­tects.

Hun­dreds of peo­ple turned out to the HIA-CSR Queens­land Hous­ing Awards on November 2, with a Her­vey Bay home taking the top award and two ad­di­tional ac­co­lades.

Colin and Michelle Clark from Es­sen­tially Res­i­den­tial took home the Home of the Year, Cus­tom Built Home of the Year and the Queens­land Trades Work­man­ship Award.

Gro­con’s Park­lands Project took the top gong at the 2018 UDIA Qld Mitchell Brandt­man Awards for Ex­cel­lence, also held on November 2.

The de­vel­op­ment, ear­marked to be­come one of Queens­land’s first builtto-rent com­mu­ni­ties, was not only crowned with the Pres­i­dent’s Award, it also won the Master Planned De­vel­op­ment award.

A Bris­bane ren­o­va­tion and a bil­lion­aire’s beach­side apart­ment on the Gold Coast were named among the best de­signs in Aus­tralia at the Na­tional Ar­chi­tec­ture Awards on November 1.

An in­ner city home in Bris­bane’s New Farm, Gib­bon Street, de­signed by Cav­ill Ar­chi­tects, landed a na­tional award for res­i­den­tial ar­chi­tec­ture – houses.

Bil­lion­aire Katie Page’s lux­ury beach­side de­vel­op­ment M3565 at Main Beach re­ceived a na­tional com­men­da­tion awarded to Vir­ginia Ker­ridge Ar­chi­tect in the mul­ti­ple hous­ing cat­e­gory.
