Builders do South Australia proud at national awards

Dec 06, 2017 Builders do South Australia proud at national awards

The results of the Master Builders National Excellence in Building and Construction Awards are testimony to the depth of talent and professionalism in South Australia, Master Builders SA says.

Each year, this prestigious event recognises and celebrates the nation’s best builders, their teams and the projects that have won them acclaim in the residential, commercial and civil construction sectors.

Nominations for the housing and commercial/industrial categories are submitted through State and Territory Master Builders associations, which have their own award processes. State and Territory Award winners in their nominated categories become finalists for the National Awards.

The 2017 National Awards presentation dinner held in Hobart on 25 November delivered the following wins for South Australia:  

  • Nathan O’Neill, Managing Director at Unique Urban Built, was awarded Young Builder of the Year for his outstanding achievements as an up and coming builder;

  • AURA Custom Projects for excellence in Alteration/Addition between $400,000 and $650,000 for their Glenunga Project;

  • Sterling Homes for National Display Home under $250,000 award for their design Verona 210;

  • Metricon Homes - National Display Home $250,000 to $350,000 for their design of Savannah 40 Loft;

  • Sarah Constructions taking out the National Commercial/Industrial Construction Award for a $10 million to $20 million build for their redevelopment of the Royal Flying Doctors Service base in Adelaide.

Master Builders SA Chief Executive Officer said the results showed the future of the South Australian building and construction industry was in good hands.

“The building sector is at the core of our community. It builds family homes, schools and hospitals those families need, and offices and warehouses for South Australian businesses.

“The Award winners were recognised as being the best in the business, a reflection of their hard work, professionalism and constant striving for excellence.

“They thoroughly deserve their awards and Master Builders SA is extremely proud of their achievements.”
