ACT and Southern NSW wins two national housing awards

Media release

ACT and Southern NSW wins two national housing awards

Media release
ACT and Southern NSW won two awards at the 2022 HIA-CSR Australian Housing Awards; one for a modern and elegant bathroom; and the other for a professional building company recognised for being strong leaders and active members of the community and building industry.

This year’s winners were unveiled on 23 April before hundreds of industry leaders at the awards ceremony held as the final night of the 2022 HIA National Conference on the Gold Coast. 

Canberra-based Archertec Interiors were named the winner of the HIA Australian Bathroom Design, partnered by Dulux, for their modern and elegant open-plan bathroom that includes a double-sided fireplace creating a level of luxury. Brushed gold tapware and accessories work harmoniously with the warm timber joinery, providing a contemporary combination.

P.A.H Innovative Construction from Wagga were named the coveted HIA Australian Professional Small Builder / Renovator, partnered by Companion Systems. The judges were impressed with their continued commitment to apprentices and students, having provided work placements to eight students in the past 12 months and employing school-based apprentices.

JW Constructions (Qld) won the highest award being named the 2022 HIA-CSR Australian Home of the Year winner for a skillfully designed home boasting open-plan living at its best.

Each room in the winning home flows effortlessly, intuitively connecting the indoors and out. The combination of board-formed concrete paired with warm wood-grained accents creates an inviting interior. Outside, natural greenery drapes elegantly from the expansive upper-level gardens, a verdant and tranquil contrast to the angular lines of the home. The home also won HIA Australian Custom Built Home, partnered by Beacon Lighting.

HIA Managing Director Graham Wolfe said the HIA-CSR Australian Housing Awards recognise the best in Australia’s residential building industry.“HIA is committed to recognising the outstanding achievements of our members. The HIA-CSR Australian Housing Awards allow us to acknowledge the skill and commitment of our members who excel in building exceptional homes, kitchens and bathrooms and have highly successful businesses.

“The workmanship of Award winners is exceptional; demonstrated in projects that push the boundaries in design and innovation. It is my absolute pleasure to congratulate each winner for their hard work and commitment to excellence. 

“My congratulations also goes to our future tradespeople – our apprentices – who strive to be the best in all their pursuits. And to the professional builders and business partners who are ahead of the game in customer service, design, innovation, building quality and business practices,” Mr Wolfe added.

The HIA-CSR Australian Housing Awards are the ultimate platform to showcase the talents of the nation’s top builders and designers. Winners are selected from state-based finalists, with awards in 23 separate categories including Professional Builders, display home, apprentice, bathrooms and kitchens.
