HIA South Australia Award Winners

HIA-CSR South Australia Housing and Kitchen & Bathroom Awards

Media release
2023 HIA-CSR SA Housing and Kitchen & Bathroom Awards Winners Announced.

The HIA-CSR SA Housing and Kitchen & Bathroom Awards offer a prestigious platform to celebrate the outstanding achievements of businesses and individuals who are producing outstanding outcomes within the residential and construction industry across South Australia.

“I have been blown away by the amazing building projects entered in this year’s awards, these homes are on par and in fact better than the very best that I have seen across the nation” said Stephen Knight, South Australian Regional Executive Director.

This year, the highly prestigious title of 2023 HIA-CSR South Australian Home of the Year was awarded to Craig Linke Bespoke Building, for their ”exquisite 100-year-old home adorned with artisan craftsmanship, meticulous detail and a lovingly restored interior”. It was a successful night for this project, which also took home awards for Renovation/Addition Project over $1 million and Renovation/Addition Project of the Year, New Bathroom over $35,000, Bathroom of the Year and Heritage Renovation.

Continuing with their impressive 2023 awards success, Craig Linke Bespoke Building were also awarded Renovated Kitchen over $85,000, Kitchen of the Year, and Outdoor Kitchen on Saturday night, for separate project entries. This is an impressive feat and follows a continued pattern of success for the business across previous award seasons. 

The Kitchen Design of the Year category was taken home by JAG Kitchens, for their glamorous and timeless kitchen, whilst the Bathroom Design of the Year category was awarded to Creative Home Renovations and featured “exquisite detailing in description and selection”.

Apprentice of the Year was awarded to fourth year apprentice, Colby Read. According to the selection panel, Colby “displays a clear passion and love for his craft and communicates his enthusiasm to his clients.” 

Following on from her success at the 2023 HIA-Cosentino South Australian Building Women awards, winning the Executive Leadership award, Julie Durand rounded out a very triumphant year and deservingly took home Building Woman of the Year. Julie’s nomination “truly stood out this year, embodying the qualities of tenacity and a wholehearted dedication to the industry”.

Weeks Homes took home the title of Professional Major Builder, Normus Homes were awarded Professional Medium Builder/Renovator, and ZJ Building were recognised as winners of the Professional Small Builder/Renovator category. Mavtect Designs were awarded the Small Business Management award. 

Precision Homes & Broadfeather Design received multiple awards, for the Townhouse Villa of the Year, and Custom Built Home $1.5 to $2 million categories, whilst Metricon Homes received Display Home of the Year for ‘Palisades 64’.

“It is important to not only recognise the built quality but also the professionalism of the business across their management and customer relations processes, a win in these categories is highly sought after and just to successfully complete the entry requirements is a solid achievement” said Stephen Knight, South Australian Regional Executive Director.

The winners of major categories can look forward to progressing to HIA’s national awards next year and we wish them every success.
