RICK WALTERS HOMES HOUSE AND COMMERCIAL HOUSE AND COMMERCIAL PTY LTD BUILDER Well-deserved win Hervey Bay builders dominated at the recent awards convened by Australia’s peak industry body for residential construction, with Rick Walters Homes taking out the top gong and three category awards. The Housing Industry Association (HIA) Awards recognise the achievements of the local housing industry and reward excellence in design, construction, innovation and housing technology. WAYNE KRUGER ELECTRICAL Hervey Bay All Electrical Contracting 0448 310 100 Rick Walters Homes was judged the major winner for a Point Vernon project involving the construction of a contemporary twostorey coastal home with exemplary rustic timber features and stylish fi nishes and inclusions. The judges described it as a truly remarkable home and unanimously agreed the home was a worthy winner of Wide Bay Home of the Year. The same project also received the kitchen and bathroom project awards, further demonstrating the outstanding nature of the build. HIA, the offi cial body of Australia’s home building industry, commended Rick Walters Homes for the builder’s ability to maximise the stunning outlook over the bay from Point Vernon, while at the same time ensuring livability and comfort. The Awards were held at Bundaberg Rowers Club in early October where a number of Wide Bay builders were acknowledged for excellence. Among them were Bungalow Homes for Best Coastal Home and Best Country Home, and Dixon Homes for Best Project Home. Besides taking home the best Wide Bay home award, Rick Walters Homes was also awarded Best Bathroom, Best Kitchen and Best Custom Built Home over $500,000. Congratulating the winners and fi nalists, HIA branch manager for Sunshine Coast/ Wide Bay, Stuart Collins, said each year the Wide Bay Housing Awards attracted an outstanding array of entries across a number of different housing forms, with this year being no different. “It is diffi cult enough selecting fi nalists let alone winners, such is the high calibre of the entries received in 2014,” he said. “This healthy level of competition ensures that new standards in design, workmanship and innovation are achieved across all award categories”. Mr Collins acknowledged the involvement of industry partners that contributed in recognising excellence within industry.
