Na­tional awards head to WA

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Residential -

WA builders had a bumper year at the 2018 Mas­ter Builders Na­tional Ex­cel­lence in Build­ing and Con­struc­tion Awards, tak­ing home a record 12 hon­ours for res­i­den­tial and com­mer­cial projects.

The event at the Ade­laide Con­ven­tion Cen­tre last week saw fam­ily com­pany A Di Bucci & Son suc­ceed in the Na­tional Lux­ury Project Home $2 mil­lion to $3 mil­lion cat­e­gory for a glam­orous home in Mt Pleas­ant.

West­style De­sign and De­vel­op­ment won the Medium Den­sity Award for two to five dwellings for its project at Cam­den Street in Wem­b­ley Downs, where two grand fam­ily homes built side by side have har­mo­nious de­signs.

WA builders also tri­umphed for dis­play homes. Cel­e­bra­tion Homes topped the un­der $250,000 cat­e­gory for the Elling­ton in Mid­vale, New Gen­er­a­tion Homes pre­vailed in the $250,000 to $350,000 cat­e­gory for Oak Ridge in Bal­divis and Novus Homes earned the ti­tle in the $500,000 to $1.5 mil­lion cat- egory for the Paragon in Iluka.

Nu­look Homes in con­junc­tion with So­lar Dwellings and Step Be­yond re­ceived the Na­tional En­vi­ron­ment and En­ergy Ef­fi­ciency Res­i­den­tial Build­ing Award for a so­lar-pas­sive home in West Leed­erville.

The state’s builders also col­lected tro­phies for re­tire­ment vil­lages and ma­jor in­fra­struc­ture.

BGC Con­struc­tion tri­umphed in the Na­tional Life­style Hous­ing for Se­niors Award re­tire­ment vil­lages cat­e­gory for the St Ives de­vel­op­ment in Carine.

It was the first and largest stage of a new com­plex with 63 lux­ury apart­ments over seven storeys, base­ment car park­ing, restau­rant, cafe, club­house, bar, li­brary and sep­a­rate health pav­il­ion.

Mul­ti­plex won three awards, in­clud­ing Na­tional Com­mer­cial Mas­ter Builder of the Year for Op­tus Sta­dium to be­come the first WA builder to win Aus­tralia’s top com­mer­cial build­ing prize.

Awards for the best com­mer­cial con­struc­tion in the over $100 mil­lion cat­e­gory, and best en­ter­tain­ment and recre­ation fa­cil­ity also went to the Perth-based builder for its sta­dium work.

“The na­tional awards are the pin­na­cle of the build­ing and con­struc­tion in­dus­try,” Mas­ter Builders ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor John Gelavis said.

“The sta­dium’s suc­cess has not only been proven by state, na­tional and in­ter­na­tional awards this year but by its swift inte- gra­tion into the lives and af­fec­tions of West Aus­tralians.”

An­other ma­jor ti­tle re­lat­ing to the sta­dium went to Laing O'rourke, which won the Na­tional Civil/in­fra­struc­ture Award in the over $25 mil­lion cat­e­gory for the Perth Sta­dium Sta­tion in Bur­swood.

Other award win­ners in­cluded Mc­corkell Con­struc­tion, which re­ceived the Na­tional Com­mer­cial His­tor­i­cal Restora­tion Award for the over­haul of the Fremantle Town

Hall.

The St Ives de­vel­op­ment in Carine won BGC Con­struc­tion the Na­tional Life­style Hous­ing for Se­niors Award in the re­tire­ment vil­lages cat­e­gory.

The award for Na­tional Lux­ury Project Home in the $2 to $3 mil­lion cat­e­gory went to A Di Bucci & Son for a home over­look­ing walk­ers and cy­clists along The Es­planade in Mt Pleas­ant.
