2021 NSW MBA Award Night Was A Monumental Success!

We were extremely proud to be in attendance of the 2021 NSW Master Builders Association Excellence in Housing & Pool Awards night hosted at The Star in Pyrmont, Sydney.

Industry Award Winners

The show celebrates excellence in construction, innovation and quality in the residential building and construction industry across NSW.

The housing awards showcases the very best in residential construction and attracts a huge range of the states' residential building sector, including project home builders, contract builders, apartment builders and contractors specialising in additions, alterations and renovations.

This black-tie event is one of the most prestigious ceremonies in the housing industry and we were extremely excited to see how we would go after being nominated for FIVE different housing and pool categories!

The 2020 awards night was all digital. A fantastic event but a little anticlimactic if we're honest as it's challenging to get excited for an awards night when we were all stationed in the office board room but this year was different – we were back in a room full of supremely talented builders, designers & architects!

Hosted by the evergreen Johanna Griggs & Peter Colquhoun once again, the night kicked off in style with some quirky tales from their stint on Better Homes & Gardens and some entertaining stories to set the mood before the award presentations begun.

With so many talented builders, it was nerve-wracking a times but worth the wait as we walked away with three wins & two finalist awards and we're grinning from ear to ear. As a matter of fact, we're still pinching ourselves!
