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.
