Another award for the wall at Cumberland
CUMBERLAND Constructions have done it again – walking out of the Housing Industry Association [HIA] awards presentation in Mackay last month with the 2014 HIA Best “Spec Home” for the Mackay and Whitsunday area.
HIA offers an array of awards to help HIA members receive recognition for outstanding workmanship, design and innovation in the dwellings they build or for their professionalism on and off the worksite.
This is just one more award to add to Cumberland Construction’s wall of fame that features more than 25 awards they have won on separate occasions.
Cumberland Constructions received an award for a home they built in the Mandara Rise estate in Cannonvale.
The house was single-storey with four bedrooms, two bathrooms, fully-air-conditioned and included a double lock-up garage.
Cumberland Constructions co-owner Kerrie Johannesen said the judges made special mention of their “energy-efficiency and thought” that led them to stand out from other competitors.
Co-owner Ray Johannesen said he always met with clients on-site to study the land and from there decided what house was best suited.
“With this [spec] home I thought about the sun and the way it lays on the land and what house design would sit on the land best.
I picked the materials that were aesthetically pleasing and ensured it had great function ability for its price,” he said. Cumberland Constructions have also won HIA awards for Best Outdoor Project Australian-wide, Best house of the Year [twice], Best Overall Custom Build Home, Best Use of Timber, Best Bathroom, Best Use of Glass, several energy efficiency awards, Best Pool Project of the Year award Australia-wide and were 2014 HIA House of the Year finalists.
