2016 Master Builders Association (MBA) Awards
Hudson Building Services has won 3 awards at the annual MBA Regional Building Excellence Awards in June 2016 for a new house in Dalmeny.
1. Winner - Best Contract Home in its price category
The house was designed by Philip Leeson Architects, a Canberra based architect firm, along with the owner who is an interior designer. A lot of emphasis was put into the detail and quality of inclusions right throughout the house. The use of both new and recycled timber was used extensively internally and externally to create the look and feel that the owner was after.
Polished concrete has been used downstairs with a ‘Salt and Pepper’ finish to compliment the recycled timber. The house is highly exposed to the environment in a coastal location so building methods and the type of materials were a high priority to ensure the house would withstand the harsh conditions over time.
2. Winner - Best Use of Timber
3. Winner - Certificate of Excellence in Carpentry
Judge’s comments: Rob’s attention to detail shines through on this project. From the front entry door, polished concrete floor and the heavy use of different timber species, this project was always going to shine. Vertical shiplap boarding to 5.0 metre high exterior walls, curve top surface decking, dry stone chimney breast, glass panel stairs with timber hand rail and treads. Spring action polished stainless steel hinges to internal doors were all noted. This project fits well with the streetscape.
2012 Master Builders Association (MBA) Awards
Hudson Building Services has won an award at the annual MBA Regional Building Excellence Awards in June 2012 for this knock-down and rebuild house in Potato Point.
Winner - New Residential House in its price category
Project: Potato Point
Judge’s comments: This home is located on a cliff top and is also in a brush fire zone. The builder faced many challenges but the end result is of a standard that impressed the Judges.
This project was a demolition/rebuild and although not over the top in size, provided more than its fair share of challenges. Located on top of a headland cliff meant that all precautions needed to be met for corrosion and weather conditions that the house will face over the coming decades. The property is also at the same time in a severe fire zone of BAL 40 which meant that exposed timber could not be used on the project.
