A GREENWOOD-BASED of bright sparks has received state honours for its electrical work on a challenging residential project.
CLS Electrical won the Domestic Residence project title at this year’s National Electrical and Communications Association’s (NECA) WA Excellence Awards in front of more than 500 guests at Crown Perth.
Business owner Craig Strauch and his team were contracted by architect Ariane Prevost to work on the new home in Swanbourne, which features recycled timber, rammed earth walls, off-form concrete ceilings, timber batten ceilings, face block work, Corten steel panelling, copper cladding and rooftop garden.
“This was a very challenging project due to the property’s unique design and elements,” Mr Strauch said.
“In addition to featuring a rooftop garden, the house incorporated many different building materials.
“A high level of collaboration with the architect ensured the finished product was absolutely perfect.”
Mr Strauch said the award win meant a great deal to the team because it recognised their effort and quality work.
“We’re quite proud to deliver a complete electrical scope of works from start to finish, with limited detail provided at the start of the project.”
The Apprentice Awards winners were also announced on the night.
The winners advance to the national NECA awards in Brisbane during November.
