More recognition at HIA Awards 2016

Saturday 29th October 2016 saw the HIA awards come to town, as Perth home builders were recognised for their outstanding efforts over the past 12 months.

As we took our seats at our table in the packed out room in the Perth Convention Centre, we felt quietly optimistic about our chances.

We had 5 nominations in for various awards and were confident the homes that we had submitted were some of our best work yet! And so it proved.

With 5 nominations, we were delighted to have been named as finalists in 4 different categories, namely:

  • Custom Built $900,001 - $1,200,000 (for our client home in Swanbourne)
  • Custom Built $625,000 - $900,000 (for our client home in City Beach)
  • Small Lot Housing $650,000 and over (also for our client home in City Beach)
  • Innovation in Housing (for our client home in Swanbourne)

City Beach - Upside Down Home

Our clients wanted to have a house that was flexible and could adapt to their changing lifestyle as their kids prepared to move out permanently. Wanting to maximise space on a narrow lot, the clients also wanted to take advantage of the views on offer, so opted for an upside down design.

Here are some photo's to show just how stunning this home turned out. You can view the floor plan and more photo's of the home on our case study page.

Swanbourne - Structurally Insulated Panels Home

This has been one of our most talked about homes. Since we completed construction we have been amazed at how many people are considering building with structurally insulated panels (SIPS) now having seen the amazing end result.

Our clients, a professional couple with two children, were looking for a builder daring enough to tackle a home design by architect James Edwards that envisaged using some unique construction methods.

We introduced them to an innovative West Australian product called R9, an affordable, lightweight panel building system that we had been waiting for the perfect opportunity to use.

You can view photo's of the home below, and be sure to read more about the project here.
