Winners of coveted building and construction awards revealed

The building and construction industry’s most outstanding projects and achievements were celebrated at the 2023 National Excellence in Building and Construction Awards in Perth on Saturday night.

Master Builders Australia CEO Denita Wawn congratulated the winners of the 51 award categories and finalists for reaching this highly competitive stage.

The three-day annual event culminated in the recognition of the nation’s top builders in residential, commercial and civil construction, highlighting the projects that have earned them acclaim.

John Holland, Built, Hutchinson Builders, Built Environs and Lendlease Building each clinched victories (some even multiple) during the event. The night also saw the announcement of four major awards: National Apprentice of the Year, Toyota National Young Builder of the Year, National Residential Master Builder of the Year, and National Construction Master Builder of the Year.

Built, in a joint venture with Obayashi (BOJV) and in partnership with Walker Corporation, took home the top spot, winning the National Construction Master Builder of the Year Award for their work on 6 & 8 Parramatta Square.

“The 30,000-square-metre Parramatta Square precinct comprises 4 commercial towers, plus a new civic library, council chambers and community facilities,” said Wawn. “The joint venture with Obayashi and the Walker Corporation developed smart solutions to the complex problems of building this mega structure while still maintaining the desired function and appearance.”

V-Build Construction Services won the National Residential Master Builder of the Year award for their Mountainview home project in Queensland.

“The stunning home reflecting the New Zealand mountain home combined with a US Ranch style, was a difficult build from the very start,” said Wawn. “The entire footprint of the house was excavated to rock, roads were built to access the estate, new electrical mains and fibre optical cabling was installed in addition to sewer treatment plants and half a million litres of water storage.”

“The home is also an entertainer’s dream with a whisky room, wine cellar, wine room, and commercially capable kitchen over four rooms, six fireplaces, and cinema.”

Ellsie Mead from Tasmania was named National Apprentice of the Year for her ability to lead and excel in her role. Her achievement is particularly commendable given her relative youth in the field.

“Ellsie’s decision to pursue the WHS Certificate IV illustrates her foresight, dedication, and motivation to continually enhance her skills and knowledge,” said Wawn. “She has undeniably earned the distinction of being a standout as the 2023 National Apprentice of the Year Award.”

South Australian Matthew Pezzuto was awarded Toyota Young National Builder of the Year. Since launching Horizon Construction Services, Matthew has demonstrated a commitment to quality, service and safety in the industry.

“Matthew has a strong focus on building excellent client relationships and producing quality results through a transparent, flexible, collaborative and proactive approach,” said Wawn.

Master Builders has also acknowledged the awards’ platinum sponsors Toyota, CBUS, and major sponsors Shell Card, Office of the Federal Safety Commissioner, WoodSolutions, Master Builders Insurance Brokers, Timber Framing Collective, Archipro and Women Building Australia.
