Published: 7 July 2017

Multiplex Constructions and Mancorp Quality Homes have taken out the major awards at this year’s Master Builders Brisbane Housing & Construction Awards, held on July 7 at the Brisbane Convention Centre.

Multiplex Constructions’ 1 William Street received the 2017 Brisbane Project of the Year and Commercial Building over $50 million; while the Brisbane House of the Year went to Mancorp Quality Homes for their spectacular Bribie Island home spread over two blocks of land and three levels. Mancorp also won the award for Individual Home over $2 million.

Plantation Homes work on the Retreat Nouveau Q1 at Yarrabilba netted them the 2017 Brisbane President’s Award. They also took home the Display Home awards in the categories for $251,000-$350,000, $451,000-$550,000 and over $551,000.

Master Builders’ CEO, Grant Galvin, congratulated all 56 winners.

“The standard we have seen this year is incredible and demonstrates the impeccable talent and expertise of our industry,” Mr Galvin said.

“The Housing & Construction Awards provide an opportunity to recognise this talent, and it is great that after 30 years, they continue to be sought-after by the state’s top builders and tradespeople.”

Island hideaway

2017 Brisbane House of the Year – Mancorp Quality Homes

Spread over two blocks of land and three levels, this spectacular island home is all about the “wow factor.” The main living, dining and kitchen areas boast uninterrupted views of Pumice Stone Passage and the Glasshouse Mountains. The guest wing contains four villas, each with their own ensuite and kitchenette. Complete with all the trimmings, the quality of finishings and attention to detail found around every corner is second to none. Mancorp Quality Homes have created a true masterpiece and are the very deserving winners of our House of the Year.

State-of-the-art office space

2017 Brisbane Project of the Year – Multiplex Constructions

As Brisbane’s tallest building, One William Street is a “once in a lifetime” building for Queensland – significant both structurally and as a landmark. Multiplex was involved from the initial bid phase, where their team managed a large team of consultants to develop a design that would not only meet the Queensland Government’s brief, but also Cbus Property’s needs as the building’s long-term asset owner. Significant challenges were largely derived from the sheer scale of the structure, with Multiplex focused on reducing working at height risks. Intelligent construction methods delivered efficiencies and safety through innovation. It’s a most deserving winner of our Project of the Year.
