‘Faultless’ Quindalup home takes out big awards at HIA South-West Housing Awards

‘Faultless’ Quindalup home takes out big awards at HIA South-West Housing Awards

A MULTI-AWARD-WINNING Quindalup home has been described as “faultless” at Saturday’s (Sept 16) 2017 HIA South-West Housing Awards, which highlight the outstanding building work in the region.

The four-bedroom, three-bathroom residence on Kinross Loop by Built By S took home the 2017 HIA South-West Home of the Year trophy and is a contemporary, north-facing pod-style home on 1ha of land with bushland views.

It features a clever mix of building materials including limestone rammed earth, Hebel aerated-concrete wall panels, Corten steel cladding, polished concrete floors and full-height north-facing sliding doors.

The project had already won a bevy of awards at the 2017 South-West Master Builders Building Excellence Awards in March, including best south-west home.

Built By S was by far the biggest winner on Saturday night, also walking away with custom-built home of the year, framed home of the year, and innovation in housing project of the year prizes.

The Bunbury builder was also a joint winner of the residential building designer of the year prize alongside The Colour Royal Design Group, and also won awards in the custom-built category for another project on Wakefield Crescent, Australind.

“Built By S has delivered a faultless project,” the awards judges said.

“The attention to the detail in the transitions between materials was superbly achieved.

“The builder as used some unique products and finishes in the home, all of them executed in a precise and professional manner.”

Other top winners on the night include Summit South-West for display home of the year, project home of the year and excellence in service – medium builder; Dale Alcock Homes South-West for spec home of the year and excellence in service – large builder; and Tallwood Constructions for renovation/addition project of the year and outdoor project of the year.

HIA WA executive director John Gelavis said the awards offered the opportunity for the residential building industry in the region to be recognised by their peers.

“The awards ceremony truly represents the best builders in the South-West region and provides the residential building industry the opportunity to showcase their quality, professionalism, innovation and creativity,” he said.
