Excelcon claims 2022 HIA Eastern Victoria Home of the Year Award

Excelcon claims 2022 HIA Eastern Victoria Home of the Year Award

Media release
Outstanding homes from across the Mornington Peninsula, Gippsland and Eastern Victoria honoured at 2022 HIA Awards.

Excelcon has won the prestigious 2022 HIA Eastern Victoria Home of the Year award for a spectacular build with a high degree of difficulty in Mount Martha.

The result was announced at the 2022 HIA Eastern Victoria Regional Housing Awards, held at the RACV Cape Schanck Resort on Friday 16 September.

Located on a steep, challenging site in Mount Martha, the winning home was designed and project managed in-house by Excelcon. The clever design moves down the slope across multiple levels, minimising deep excavation.

Inside, extensive glazing maximises natural light and stunning bay views, and the levels are joined by a feature open-tread staircase with frameless glass balustrade. The judges remarked on the very high standard of work all trades have displayed in the build of this home, as well as the many detailed elements featured.

Excellent workmanship, and the expertise displayed by the builder in designing and managing this complex build, are just some of the factors that lead the judges to select this project as Eastern Victoria Home of the Year.

“This is a truly outstanding home, and HIA congratulates the entire Excelcon team on this achievement,” says Fiona Nield, HIA Regional Executive Director.

In addition to 2022 HIA Eastern Victoria Home of the Year, this project also won Excelcon the Custom Built Home of the Year and Custom Built Home $1.5 million - $2 million awards.

Other builders who were recognised on the night include:

  • Anderson Homes claimed Renovation/Addition Project of the Year and Renovation/Addition Project over $1 million honours for their project in Cape Schanck.
  • Beaumont Building Design won the GreenSmart Sustainable Home and Residential Design categories for two separate projects in Cape Paterson.
  • Dennis Family Homes, winners of the Display Home of the Year and Display Home over $500,001 awards for their Macedon 334 Hamptons display home in Warragul.
  • Glenco Building Group took out Townhouse/Villa of the Year and Renovation/Addition Project $500,001 - $1 million for two separate projects on the Mornington Peninsula.
  • Latitude 37 Homes received Spec Home of the Year and Spec Home over $500,001 for a spec build in Mount Eliza.
  • Swell Building Group won eight awards in total, including Kitchen of the Year, Bathroom of the Year, Custom Built Home over $2 million and Outdoor Project.
  • Virtue Homes won five awards, including Small Commercial Project, Residential Interior Design and Custom Built Home $350,001 - $500,000

Beachwood Homes, Claytons Alfresco, Co Construct, Fairhaven Homes, Gilpip Homes, Latrobe Valley Building Services, Metricon Homes, Mint Kitchens Moonee Ponds and Roseleigh Homes were also winners on the night.

“The HIA Awards are a showcase of the best of the best in the residential building industry, and of the absolutely outstanding quality of work done by HIA members” says Ms Nield. “The homes recognised in the 2022 HIA Eastern Victoria Regional Housing Awards are exceptional, and HIA congratulates all of the winners and finalists.”
