Beer buzz takes brewer to na­tional award

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Business -

NORTH­BRIDGE Brew­ing Com­pany (NBC) won Na­tional Build­ing De­sign of the Year ear­lier last month.

The 12-hec­tolitre mi­cro­brew­ery won its cat­e­gory at the Build­ing De­sign­ers Aus­tralia awards in Mel­bourne on Oc­to­ber 17.

Shen­ton Park de­signer D4 De­signs pro­posed the $7 mil­lion project, which opened near North­bridge Pi­azza in late 2014.

D4 De­signs di­rec­tor Doug Pa­ton said he “had a feel­ing” about the awards. “It’s a huge hon­our and we’re very sur­prised,” Mr Pa­ton said.

“Nor­mally the big­gest bud­get takes the award but I think the judges un­der­stood the com­plex­ity in the de­sign and build­ing to get that end re­sult.”

Mr Pa­ton said he started de­sign­ing the Lake Street build­ing eight years ago and there were 41 li­cence ap­provals in the build­ing process.

NBC di­rec­tor Ben Rasheed said he was “thrilled” to be recog­nised with the “high-pro­file” award. He praised Mr Pa­ton for in­te­grat­ing the build­ing with the green space of the Pi­azza.
