HIA Executive Director, Stuart Collins said “Despite the continuing challenges posed by the pandemic, particularly around material and skills shortages, HIA has seen an increase in entries and interest in our award’s program.”
The awards which celebrate excellence in building, design, innovation and sustainability were hosted by local media personality Matthew Garwood. The Minister for State Development, Construction and Housing, Michael Ferguson, addressed the audience during the event praising the industry for its resilience, strong contribution to the economy and for providing quality housing options to Tasmanians.
Winner of the major award on the night, the HIA-CSR Tasmanian Home of the Year was In2Construction Services for their stunning contemporary interpretation of a farmhouse, Coopworth, nestled in the rural surrounds of Bruny Island. The home captures wide ranging views from grazing sheep to the D'Entrecasteaux Channel and to the mountain ranges beyond. It possesses a thoughtful internal layout which can be opened up to host a large gathering of family and friends, with a modern veranda sleep out which is stunning in its simplicity. Other features include an exposed wool lining in the living room, ply walls and ceilings throughout adding warmth to the interior, polished concrete floors on the lower level giving a farmhouse feel and a 7.7 energy efficiency rating. In the words of the judges, “This very simple but truly radical build is definitely one of Tasmania’s most defining houses.”
Mr Collins congratulated the winners and finalists, remarking that “Each year the awards attract an outstanding array of entries across a number of different housing forms with this year being no exception.
“As in previous years the awards were well supported by CSR and other HIA industry partners whose support remains critical in ensuring events which celebrate industry success can continue” said Mr. Collins.

Western Australia is one of just two states to see an increase in new home sales in April, recording a significant increase in the amount of new activity from the same period prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Housing Industry Association (HIA) has welcomed the ongoing support for Western Australia’s residential building industry in the 2022-2023 State Budget, including a number of targeted initiatives aimed at attracting more skilled workers into the state amid record high levels of detached construction.
