Airlie Beach revamp wins top construction gong

The Airlie Beach Foreshore Revitalisation Project has won the Project of the Year title at the Master Builders Mackay & Whitsunday Housing & Construction Awards.

The $7.1 million project was completed last year, following the devastation wrought by Severe Tropical Cyclone Debbie in 2017.

The work, by Paynters, also won the Best Community Service Facilities category. 

Paynters made it a hat-trick with the award for Best Tourism and Leisure Facilities over $10 million for the Whitsunday Coast Airport Terminal Upgrade.

Red Emperor Constructions also took home multiple awards, including the title of House of the Year for their Beacons home at Airlie Beach (pictured above).

Red Emperor was commended for the exceptionally high-quality finish and attention to detail, which also earned Beacons the award for Best Individual Home $1.26 million – $2 million.

Red Emperor Constructions also took honours in the housing categoryfor Home Renovation/Remodelling Project over $1 million for their Mediterranean House on Hamilton Island, as well as Best Individual Home $451,000 – $550,000 for the Johnswood project at Cannonvale, and Best Use of Sloping Sites for the Horizons property at Airlie Beach.

The contemporary flow of Parkedge Abode at Richmond secured the prestigious President’s Award for Executive Living Homes. Parkedge Abode was also named Best Individual Home $251,000 – $350,000.

Master Builders Mackay & Whitsunday regional manager Malcolm Hull, congratulated all 33 category winners.

“With projects like the Bowen Hospital Paediatrics Ward & High Dependency Unit upgrade, Proserpine State High School New Learning Centre, and Mackay’s new mental health Step Up Step Down facility also among the award winners, it’s fantastic to see our local communities benefiting from the skills and workmanship of our local construction industry,” he said.
