A swathe of the Sunshine State’s most sensational projects have scooped up this year’s Master Builders Queensland Housing & Construction Awards.

Among the field of winners are waterfront homes and towers that inspire the imagination, and a bespoke family home with sweeping views of Brookwater Golf Course.

Master Builders CEO Paul Bidwell congratulated the winners across all 57 categories.

“From stylish renovations and beautiful new homes to state-of-the-art hospitals, sports hubs, pubs and eco-tourism facilities, and soaring residential towers inspiring the imagination — there’s nothing Master Builders can’t accomplish,” he said.

“The efforts from promising apprentices, women leading the way in the industry, and builders showing their commitment to the future ahead, is also something we are always excited to celebrate.

“Whether a winner or not, their craftsmanship is a credit to the Master Builders name, and each of them is a part of our family. We pride ourselves on always having their back, whether that means being there in times of need, or celebrating their achievements.

“It’s our members’ drive, skill and determination on redefining excellence that is helping to ensure our continued success and viability in both the residential and commercial sectors, now and into the future.”

Major winners

House of the year for 2022 was won by Braeden Constructions for Modern Thai House, President’s Award went to Reynolds Home Brookwater by KJ Constructions, and Multiplex Constructions took out Project of the Year for The One Residences.

Braeden Constructions’ Sunshine Coast build wraps around a central tropical oasis. The home includes a basement living level that is below the river. This three-level waterfront home boasts an outdoor dining pavilion, while a fire pit and seating give the illusion of floating in the pool.

Among notable features, the main feature windows are double-glazed New Guinea rosewood, each panel weighing up to 340 kilograms.

Overlooking the Brookwater Golf Course, KJ Constructions’ Reynolds Home Brookwater boasts innovative use of construction techniques and superb finishes. The bespoke design positively utilises the sloping site to provide views over the golf course from multiple rooms.

The One at 300 George Street in Brisbane is of the tallest towers in the city, standing at just over 274 metres. The 83-storey tower includes a palatial foyer and polished finishes. The opulent apartments offer a world-class residential structure in Brisbane’s newest and most innovative precinct. Judges acknowledged it was a difficult job for Multiplex Constructions as they had to collaborate with several stakeholders due to the tower’s height.
