Our Brilliant Builders

By Mark Beale

The Whitsundays have once again shown we are the home of quality builders.

Our local construction companies have brought a swag of awards back to the region, taking out more than a few top honours at the Master Builders Awards 2016 Mackay & Whitsunday.

Cannonvale based McNeil Building earned the Housing for Sloping Sites honour, adding to their already extensive list of awards from Master Builders over the past five years.

Moloko Homes, also based in Cannonvale, claimed the Display Home $251,000 to $300,000 title for their stylish design situated in Cannon Valley Rise Estate.

Our last Cannonvale-based champion is Gary Molloy Constructions who took out The Ken and Nola Clarke Perpetual Award for Quality Workmanship.

The company were also awarded Best Residential Kitchen for a stunning set up including marble bench tops and cabinets, a beautiful blue splashback.

Proserpine’s Gangemi Cabinet Markers were named Residential Trade Contractor of the Year, earning Master Builders honours for the sixth year running.

Kelsey Creek’s Coastal Edge Constructions really stuck out among the crowd this year, taking home the House of the Year for a beautiful home on Hamilton Island and Best Residential Bathroom for the same home’s stunning marble edition with its own courtyard.

Bowen also brought home the bacon in Pilcher Industries for Coral’s City to Country with its beautiful rock-lined entry way.

Finally, Bowen’s JD Lowcock & Co claimed the title of Individual Home $651,000 to $750,000 for Inverdon House, a stylish brick structure with tasteful furnishing.
