OSBORNE PARK builder Spadaccini Homes is officially Australia’s best residential builder.
The multi-award-winning industry leader was crowned the 2017 National Residential Master Builder of the Year at Saturday’s Master Builders Australia National Excellence in Building and Construction gala Awards in Hobart.
Rob Spadaccini received the prestigious accolade on behalf of his eponymous building company at the event, picking up the National Luxury Project Over $2 million award as well for work on a stunning Watermans Bay residence.
Master Builders WA director Michael McLean congratulated Mr Spadaccini and his team on building one of Australia’s best new homes.
“The attention to detail from the builder and quality of workmanship demonstrated by all specialist trades used by Spadaccini Homes achieved this deserving success at a national level,” Mr McLean said.
“Having inspected this home myself, I was not surprised that our six judges rated it a stand-out winner amongst some amazing entries.”
The triumphs cap off a stellar year for Spadaccini Homes, who was also handed the Australian Home of the Year trophy at the HIA-CSR Australian Housing Awards earlier this year for its Sorrento project.
“This is the first time that any builder has won both the Master Builders and HIA top national home in the same year for two different homes, a record which is unlikely to be rivalled,” Mr McLean said.
“It is a credit to the quality of WA builders and our tradies that WA has won the top home award at a national level for the past two years, which is a remarkable achievement.”
Adrian Zorzi Homes took home the prize last year.
Several other WA builders performed well at the hotly contested national awards, including Commercial Aquatics Australia, who was named National Specialist Contractor of the Year for its precision work and painstaking attention to detail applied to the swimming pools at Crown Towers Perth.
PACT Construction’s efforts on St George Chambers – Church House saw it win the National Commercial/Industrial Construction Award– $20 million to $50 million) category and Ultimo Design & Construction took out the National Commercial/Industrial Construction Award under $5 million for The Guildford Hotel redevelopment.
Boutique building company Element Builders won the National Project Home – $500,000 to $1 million award for creating a Woodbridge home with real “wow” factor.
“It was great to see PACT and Ultimo Design & Construction rewarded at a national level for the first time for their magnificent reconstruction work on two iconic projects,” Mr McLean said.
“Their exquisite skills in completing two very challenging projects are a credit to their construction teams and management.
“Commercial Aquatics topped off a memorable night for WA by winning the keenly sought after Specialist Contractor of the Year Award for its extraordinary work on Crown Towers’ pools.
“Anyone who has seen these amazing pools will appreciate their uniqueness and quality of finish, which was achieved through first class planning, supervision and trade skills.”
