October 15, 2022

A three-story waterfront home, luxury city towers and a modern family residence on a golf course all earned top marks in the 2022 Master Builders Queensland Housing & Construction Awards.

The state’s boldest and most brilliant builders were celebrated at a glittering evening dress ceremony held in the Plaza Ballroom at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Center on Saturday 15 October.

As always, the caliber of entries from this year’s entrants was remarkable and overcame the challenges the industry faced. The jury was impressed by the amount of entries, their stunning finishes and the level of difficulty of the construction.

Multiplex Constructions’ dazzling The One project triumphed again, winning three awards including the coveted title BCA Certification Project of the Year.

The 83-story high-rise addition at the 300 George Street development won the DWF Excellence in Occupational Health and Safety Award and grabbed the best Residential building (high-rise building over 3 floors) over 20 million dollars.
