An audience of nearly 800 witnessed CBD Contracting Group Pty Ltd receive the award for Master Builder of the Year at Crown Palladium.
CBD’s winning project, a robust, geometric home in Brighton, stands in high contrast to many of the traditionally-styled houses that surround it, with few clues on the exterior as to the arrangement of spaces and functions within. Copper screens and catenary wires envelop the home, offering distinctive-looking climate-control features, and an origami-like garage entry gives security a sculptural edge.
Master Builders Victoria President Melanie Fasham presented the award, also naming Todd Newman Builders the award for Regional Residential Builder of the Year for a home in Bendigo. Master Builders Australia CEO Denita Wawn presented Lonsdale Building Group’s Nick Lonsdale with the award for Young Builder of the Year.
Master Builders CEO Radley de Silva said it was an honour to acknowledge the quality work, dedication and craftsmanship of all of the winners.
“The winning projects this year make a strong visual impression, and that underscores the breadth of talent to be found among Victoria’s Master Builders,” he said. “That bodes well for the very large and growing number of people in our state who need new and renovated homes.”
“CBD Contracting has built a home with a monumental bearing without sacrificing the atmosphere of homelike intimacy,” Mr de Silva said. “Likewise, Todd Newman Builders has embraced a sophisticated, modern project with an intimate, comfortable scale.”
“It is also rewarding for Master Builders to acknowledge the building achievements of Young Builder of the Year Nick Lonsdale, whose work speaks volumes for the future and quality of our industry workforce,” Mr de Silva said.
CBD Contracting will now compete in the National Excellence in Building Awards to be held on 24 November at Adelaide Convention Centre.
