Gladstone gets the gong
WINNERS of the Master Builders Central Queensland Housing and Construction Awards were announced at a gala presentation on Friday night.
The Housing and Construction Awards recognise those at the forefront of building innovation and excellence in the housing and construction industry in Queensland.
Master Builders regional manager Tom Mammen said the awards were a great way for builders to gain public and industry recognition, especially in these tough economic times. The calibre of entrants in this year's awards was outstanding and resulted in only the best of the best being awarded, he said.
“The enormous effort that members went through to produce quality projects was evident on the night,” Mr Mammen said.
A number of Gladstone companies entered into the awards, but it was CCF Homes Finecorp Industries that came out on top with four awards in total for the best bathroom, the best display home, the best individual home ($250,000) and the best display home ($751,000 to $1 million).
Director of CCF Homes Craig Christensen said innovation came through listening to the owners and their needs.
“I use the best tradesman I can find in the local industry,” Mr Christensen said.
“It was great to be recognised by the industry and to know that we are consistently supplying quality to home buyers.”
Each year, Master Builders Award nominations are called against set criteria, after which, Housing and Construction Award ceremonies are held across the State to announce the regional winners.
Regional winners go into the state final in October for a chance to go to the nationals.
