Sports facility takes gong
HPS Contractors added another award to their list of achievements after winning the Sporting Facilities Up To $5 Million category at the recent Master Builders Awards in Cairns earlier this month.
HPS Contractors construction and civil manager, Jarrad McDonald, says the award means a lot to the team.
“We were absolutely thrilled when we heard our team had won such a prestigious awards, and it was great to see the hard work acknowledged,” he says.
The company was recognised for their involvement in the AFL Cape York House’s Multi-Purpose Facility, which opened at Portsmith earlier this year.
The HPS team were heavily involved in both the design and construct of the new $850,000 Multi-Purpose Facility, which provides Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander students with access to a gymnasium, canteen, change rooms and undercover basketball court.
“It was an incredible project to watch come together,” says Jarrad.
“To know this facility will play a huge role in improving the quality of life for these young men is really rewarding.” Jarrad says the project is an example of how the HPS team comes into its own by bringing together trades professionals from various specialities to deliver successful projects to their clients.
“In addition to managing the overall project, we took care of the plumbing, roofing, joinery, sheetmetal and glazing services,” he says.
At the 2013 Master Builders Awards, HPS won the same award for the initial AFL Cape York House project.
Three years later, they’ve done it again with the MultiPurpose Facility addition.
HPS Contractors won the Sporting Facilities Up To $5 Million category at the Far North Queensland Master Builders Awards for the AFL Cape York House Multi-Purpose Facility.
