Published: 10 July 2015

Lend Lease and JBS Building and Development Pty Ltd have taken out the major awards at this year’s Master Builders Brisbane Housing & Constructions Awards, held on 10 July at the Sofitel.

Lend Lease’s Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital received the 2015 Brisbane Project of the Year, while the Brisbane House of the Year went to JBS Building and Development Pty Ltd for their entertainers paradise.

Paynter Dixon Queensland’s work on the Riparian Plaza netted them an award in the Innovation in Workplace Health & Safety category, as well as the award for Hospitality Facilities and Lifestyle Accommodation for Seniors.

Master Builders’ Executive Director, Grant Galvin, congratulated all 54 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 28 years, they continue to be sought after by the state’s top builders and tradespeople.”

A state-of-the-art facility 

Winner of the 2015 Brisbane Project of the Year – Lend Lease Building Pty Ltd

The Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital brings together highly specialised paediatric and children’s health services and comprises more than 74 specialist clinical departments.

The facility has been designed from the outset to be welcoming, safe and environmentally sustainable, combining innovations in architecture, engineering and construction that have ensured the best possible health outcomes for patients.

With the project presenting such an extensive scope, it was an intricate and lengthy process for Lend Lease and their team of consultants and subcontractors. The project team established strong relationships with all external stakeholders, which were instrumental to the success of the project.
