Coast shines at con­struc­tion awards

Four lo­cal builders show the state how it’s done

Sunshine Coast Daily - - NEWS -

A WORLD-CLASS, one-of-akind tourist at­trac­tion in the state’s north, and a Euro­peanin­spired man­sion in the south have taken top hon­ours at this year’s Queens­land Hous­ing & Con­struc­tion Awards.

But lo­cally a host of Sunshine Coast builders have taken home gongs at the gala event last night.

Four Sunshine Coast builders have been hon­oured for projects that ticked all the boxes of judges.

In the Tourism and Leisure Fa­cil­i­ties up to $10 mil­lion Ruby De­vel­op­ments Pty Ltd came out on top with their Liv­ing Gems Pa­cific Par­adise Coun­try Club.

Hutchin­son Builders were hon­oured in the Com­mer­cial Build­ing up to $5 mil­lion cat­e­gory for their work on the Pere­gian Beach Dig­i­tal Hub.

In the hous­ing cat­e­gory, Bold Prop­er­ties Dis­play Home, up to $250,000, the Ca­lypso 187 at Bells Creek was the win­ner.

Judges said the home was warm, re­lax­ing and com­fort­able.

At just 187sq m the de­sign packs a punch in­clud­ing four bed­rooms, dou­ble garage, two bath­rooms and a spa­cious kitchen, liv­ing and din­ing


Blinco Homes took out the In­di­vid­ual Home, $351,000 – $450,000, for their King­fisher home at Palmview.

Judges were im­pressed with the soar­ing ceil­ing in the main ca­sual liv­ing space, stun­ning tim­ber floors and ex­pan­sive glass to cap­ture nat­u­ral light and the for­est views.

The other Coast win­ner was the Plat­inum Prop­erty Group.

They won Best Res­i­den­tial Kitchen with their Hamp­ton­sin­spired home at Twin Wa­ters.

Mas­ter Builders CEO Grant Galvin ap­plauded all the win­ners across the 61 cat­e­gories.

“This year’s awards theme was ‘Cel­e­brat­ing build­ing com­mu­ni­ties, cel­e­brat­ing you’. The homes, projects and peo­ple who en­tered cer­tainly de­liv­ered the goods,” Mr Galvin said.

“From health fa­cil­i­ties, schools, shop­ping cen­tres and li­braries, to wa­ter­front man­sions, con­tem­po­rary de­signs

and affordable luxury, this year’s win­ners have helped shape and grow Queens­land towns and com­mu­ni­ties. They are a true cel­e­bra­tion of what our di­verse in­dus­try is ca­pa­ble of.

“Once again the judges had a very tough job on their hands. The high cal­i­bre of en­tries shows our mem­bers are con­tin­u­ing to push through bound­aries, in­no­vate, over­come ob­sta­cles and pro­duce qual­ity projects are amongst Queens­land’s best.

“It’s hum­bling that af­ter more than 30 years, the Hous­ing & Con­struc­tion Awards con­tinue to be the pin­na­cle achieve­ment sought af­ter by the state’s top builders and trades­peo­ple.”

FK Gard­ner& Son san dDT L Con­struc­tions were recog­nised for their con­tri­bu­tions to build­ing Queens­land com­mu­ni­ties, tak­ing home Project of the Year and House of the Year, re­spec­tively.
