Media release

Brynor Constructions are three-time HIA Eastern Victoria Home of the Year Award winners

Media release
Outstanding homes and projects from across Gippsland and the Mornington Peninsula honoured with 2021 HIA Awards.

The prestigious 2021 HIA Eastern Victoria Home of the Year award has been won by Brynor Constructions for a stunning custom built home in Blairgowrie.

The win, announced with an online broadcast on Wednesday 1 December 2021, is the third year in a row that Brynor Constructions has been honoured with the HIA Eastern Victoria Home of the Year title.

In addition to the exemplary quality of the build, the judges recognised the Brynor Constructions team for their expertise in overcoming the challenges of working on a sloping and sandy site.  The home boasts an abundance of natural light, takes perfect advantage of stunning bay views, and delivers on all the promise of the design by architects Gray Puksand.

“This is an undeniably impressive home, a true showcase of the builder’s expertise and craft,” says Fiona Nield, HIA Executive Director, Victoria.  “With work of this quality, Brynor Constructions are absolutely deserving winners of the HIA Eastern Victoria Home of the Year title for the third year in a row.”

In addition to 2021 HIA Eastern Victoria Home of the Year, this project also won Brynor Constructions the Eastern Victoria Custom Built Home of the Year and Custom Built Home over $2 million awards on the night.

Many other builders also celebrated success at the 2021 HIA Eastern Victoria Housing Awards.  Most notably, Traralgon-based Virtue Homes won an amazing 12 awards on the night including Display Home of the Year, Bathroom of the Year, four custom built home category awards and additional awards in the townhouse, small commercial, kitchen and laundry categories.

Latitude 37 Homes were winners of the Eastern Victoria Spec Home of the Year title with a stunning build in Mount Eliza.  Working Dog Construction took out the Eastern Victoria Renovation of the Year title with a striking transformation in McCrae, and Let’s Talk Kitchens & Interiors won Eastern Victoria Kitchen of the Year honours with an outstanding entry in Flinders.

Gregory Builders won three awards in the custom built home, kitchen and bathroom categories.  Colmac Homes, Simonds Homes, Metricon Homes and the Australian Building Company all won display home category awards.  Beaumont Building Design won GreenSmart Sustainable Home and Residential Building Designer awards, while Jasmine McClelland Design won in the Residential Interior Design and Kitchen Design categories.

“HIA congratulates all of the winners and finalists in the 2021 HIA Eastern Victoria Regional Housing Awards,” says Ms Nield.  “The HIA Awards are a showcase of the best of the best in the residential building industry, and these projects absolutely showcase the outstanding quality of work carried out by HIA members.”
