Whilst we weren’t able to meet face to face we were delighted to celebrate the 21st running of the awards and view the achievements of the housing industry in the HIA Hunter region.
Held before an online crowd of industry leaders and peers that operate across the Hunter and Central Coast regions, the awards acknowledge the talent of builders, contractors, designers and manufacturers who plan and construct quality new homes, townhouses, renovations, kitchens and bathrooms.
Judged by industry professionals, winners were selected in 27 separate categories, with Butler Building taking out the coveted HIA-CSR Hunter Home of the Year award.
Against strong competition the judges said “delivering a mid-century modern style, this architecturally designed home is a suburban masterpiece. The variety in materials and finishes used throughout are unique yet complimentary with the astute use of timber battens, exposed brickwork and chrome black finishes providing a seamless transition between the exterior and interior.”
HIA Hunter Executive Director Craig Jennion congratulated Butler Building and all Hunter Award winners and finalists. “HIA members are dedicated to achieving the very best workmanship and standards in every project they undertake. HIA’s Awards provide a tremendous opportunity for our members to showcase their projects and highlight building and design excellence,” he said.
Other winners on the night, included Bell River Homes for ‘Display Home of the Year’, Hunter Homes for ‘Project Home of the Year’, BuildArt Projects for ‘Renovation/Addition Project of the Year’, Construct Central Coast for ‘Spec Home of the Year’, P&D Bush Building for ‘Townhouse/Villa Development of the Year’ and Evolve Housing for ‘Affordable Housing of the Year’.
McDonald Jones Homes won the Professional Major Builder award, with Tullipan Homes taking out Professional Medium Builder / Renovator for the fourth year in a row and Walkom Constructions the Professional Small Builder / Renovator award.
In the Kitchen and Bathroom categories ‘Kitchen Project of the Year’ was awarded to Lifestyle Custom Cabinetry and Peter Bailey Building took out ‘Bathroom Project of the Year’.
Mr Jennion congratulated all 2021 entrants. “HIA is delighted with the exceptional quality of entries and level of competition this year. In a year that has thrown up many challenges all winners and finalists should be proud to have reached the pinnacle of excellence as demonstrated in these awards,” he said.
