The Sunshine Coast’s multimillion-dollar property industry was celebrated earlier this month when the Housing Industry Association hosted its Sunshine Coast/Wide Bay Housing Awards at Novotel Twin Waters.
The awards recognise building and design excellence and are known for raising the bar in contemporary design, construction, innovation and housing technology.
The winner of the major award on the night was Dave Becker Constructions. The local builder took out Sunshine Coast Home of the Year with a superbly designed and custom-built home in the hinterland.
Joining Dave Becker Constructions were Aria Property Group (apartment complex), Mosaic Construction (renovation, residential interior decorate), SX Constructions (GreenSmart sustainable home) and Planet Homes (display home).
Other major award winners on the night will move on to compete at the HIA Queensland Housing Awards, which will be held on November 3.
Grant McDonald Homes won the My Weekly Preview and AD Marketing People’s Choice Award, again proving its popularity, as it is the third year the company has collected this award.
HIA Sunshine Coast branch manager Stuart Collins congratulated all the winners on their work.
“Each year the HIA Sunshine Coast/Wide Bay Housing Awards attract an outstanding array of entries across a number of different housing forms with this year being no exception,’’ he says.
“It is difficult enough selecting finalists, let alone winners, such is the high calibre of the entries received this year.
“This healthy level of competition ensures that new standards in design, workmanship and innovation are achieved across all award categories and this has resulted in success at both the state and national level.
“The awards are a strong statement of the commitment and dedication of HIA members in Queensland to delivering exceptional housing outcomes that will stand the test of time,” Collins tells My Weekly Preview.
“The projects on show undoubtedly demonstrate that the industry has once again risen to the challenge.
“Without the involvement of HIA’s many partners, important industry events like this would not be possible and we thank them for their contribution in recognising excellence within industry.”
