City projects shine at building industry awards

GLADSTONE projects and businesses were in the spotlight on Saturday evening when they scored honours at one of the building industry's top nights.

Beau Corp Aquatics and Construction (Gladstone Aquatic Centre); ADCO Constructions (Gladstone Entertainment Convention Centre and office redevelopment), ASM Builders (MM Electrical & Aurizon developments), CCF Homes and CCF Constructions (Avis Car Rental depot), RCQ Constructions (Oaks Grand Hotel) and DR Moore Constructions (The Stirling Rockhampton) walked away winners at the Master Builders Central Queensland Housing and Constructions Awards in Rockhampton.

While the major awards went to companies outside the region - Ram Contractors Qld, McElhenny Constructions and HJ Family Homes - Gladstone was well represented at the event.

Master Builders' central Queensland regional manager Dennis Bryan said the talent across the awards' 43 categories was high.

"The standard we have seen this year is incredible and demonstrates the impeccable talent and expertise of our industry," Mr Bryant said.

"The housing and construction awards provide an opportunity to recognise this talent and it is great that after 27 years they continue to be sought after by the state's top builders and tradespeople."

ADCO Constructions was the big Gladstone winner with three honours.

It earned accolades for refurbishment/renovation over $5 million, the award for sporting and community service facilities over $20 million and commercial building (office accommodation) over $5 million.

All three prizes were for its work on the Gladstone Entertainment Convention Centre office redevelopment.

ASM Builders also scooped two prizes - sporting and community service facilities over $20 million and commercial building (office accommodation) over $5 million.

Ram Contractors Qld's St Brigid's Kindergarten and Primary School received the central Queensland project of the year honour, while central Queensland house of the year went to McElhenny.
