Residential Builder of the Year

Inhabit Construction

In 2023 Inhabit Construction has undertaken 2 particularly fine and very different residential projects. Fron Haul is a large family residence, simple forms constructed well, with fine details and handmade features throughout. The Little House is small in footprint but incredibly complex and beautifully constructed. It is a brave project and one that not all clients or builders would consider taking on. In both these winning projects Inhabit Construction have shown meticulous skill and care and in the extent of difference they have illustrated the full breadth of their ability.

Commercial Builder of the Year

Vos Construction & Joinery

The many differing elements of the Living City Waterfront Precinct project, ranging from an elevated pier to small highly detailed buildings and extensive landscape features, demonstrate the wide range of skills that have been mobilised to complete it. Much of the work involved is not obvious, and the elegance of the constructed forms tends to conceal the complexity of the construction tasks involved. The success of the finished precinct reflects the skill and persistence of this team. The project represents the essence of what Vos Construction and Joinery has brought to this year’s Awards program – a proactive problem-solving attitude, and a dedication to excellence.

Unique Achievement in Construction

AJR Construct

Windermere Visitor Node

This category acknowledges projects which have overcome a unique degree of difficulty. This is truly the case for AJR Construct’s work in building this project within the heart of the extreme and remote alpine environment of the Cradle Mountain – Lake St Clair National Park. Extraordinary measures were taken to maintain comfort and connectivity for the construction team, to manage helicopter logistics, and to organise prefabricated construction packages that were amenable to helicopter transport and efficient site assembly. None of this work is apparent from the finished project however, which presents as a hand-crafted bespoke work of art.
