Another award for the wall at Cum­ber­land

Whitsunday Times - - MOTORING -

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.

WIN­NERS: Trades­man car­pen­ter Dy­lan Jo­han­nesen and di­rec­tor Ray Jo­han­nesen from Cum­ber­land Con­struc­tion won the 2014 HIA Best “Spec Home” award for the Mackay and Whit­sun­day area.
