  • Two awards were for the Gage Road project.
  • One award was for the Jetty Bar.
  • The Jetty Bar construction resulted in a carbon offset of 9.8 tonnes.

The Booragoon-based builder behind Gage Roads and Jetty Bar has taken home a trio of awards at the latest Master Builders Association of WA (MBA) Excellence in Construction Awards.

ICS Australia was awarded for:

  • Best Historic Restoration or Refurbishment – Gage Roads, $5 million to $10 million,
  • Best Retail Building – Gage Roads, $5 million to $10 million, and
  • Best Retail Building – Jetty Bar – Under $1.5 million.

“We are proud to have taken home three awards in this year’s Master Builder Awards,” said ICS Australia’s director, Craig Peterson.

“These awards show that excellence and craftsmanship is still very much a part of WA’s building industry in what has been a challenging and tumultuous year for the sector.

“Gage Roads and Jetty Bar are equally unique and ambitious in their approach to design and construction. These builds made smart and sustainable use of prime yet underutilised riverside space to create venues which have become a major attraction to Fremantle.”

Gage Roads takes home two awards

The Fremantle hospitality venue is a 100-year-old heritage-listed A-Shed, turned waterfront venue.

Constructed in 1926, the A-Shed makes up one of the last remaining sets of early 20th-century port cargo sheds in the world.

The $10 million flagship microbrewery has created a 3,600 square metre venue with capacity for 1,500 patrons and a 25-hectolitre brew kit with 16 tanks.

Jetty Bar awarded for Best Retail Building

The venue sits on the edge of the Swan River, and was a first of its kind build in WA.

Construction saw the timber framework of the bar erected in only one day. Made almost entirely from sustainable, locally grown timber, construction resulted in a carbon offset of 9.8 tonnes making it one of Western Australia’s most sustainably designed and built venues.
