President’s award recipient: Lagom, by Gordon Bourke Constructions
  • Won by Gordon Bourke Constructions
  • Includes a "Hollywood-style walk-in robe and lavish ensuite"
  • Has a "unique and appealing two-street frontage"

The building and construction industry has been the backbone of Australia throughout the pandemic, and the grit and determination of the industry was praised by Master Builders CEO Grant Galvin at this years MBA Queensland Housing and Construction Awards:

“Despite the unprecedented conditions we are facing, our industry continues to fare better than many others — and it’s our members’ drive, skill and determination to push the boundaries of what’s possible that is helping to ensure our continued success and viability in both the residential and commercial sectors, now and into the future.”

Held over last weekend, the awards saw some spectacular projects recognised for excellence, and with the housing boom, and indeed apartment boom up and down Queensland’s coast, it is no wonder it was tight competition.

President’s award

The 2021 President’s award went to Gordon Bourke Constructions for Lagom. The project also picked up the award for Individual Home from $250,000 to $350,000.

Gordon Bourke Constructions was praised for its Scandinavian-inspired home, which included stunning exterior features such as French pattern travertine tiling and large glass windows within the multiple feature gables.

The extravagant master suite at the front of the home is pure luxury, with his-and-hers Hollywood-style walk-in robe and lavish ensuite. It’s separated from the three additional bedrooms by a fabulous media room, while a northerly landscaped yard flows off the alfresco, perfect for entertaining in this beautiful family home.

Judges praised the project for its value:

“This is a great house with a lot of interesting finishes. The use of different products presents a modern yet warm and inviting residence. An exceptional effort by the builder.

“The construction is of a very high standard in terms of quality and is extremely good value for money.”

Consideration of the land upon which the house was built was also praised.

“Designed to suit the corner block with unique and appealing two-street frontage, and north-facing outdoor living areas.”
