South Australian builders were on display at the Master Builders Australia National Building Excellence Awards in Adelaide on the weekend with Bianco Precast, Hindmarsh Construction Australia (SA) and Scott Salisbury Homes each recognised on the national stage.

Bianco Precast won the National Specialist Contractor of the Year for their outstanding work on the Darlington Bridge upgrade, over the Southern Expressway.

The award recognises their world-class work as one of the best in building and construction across the country in 2018. The installation of the first of eight bridges is part of the SA Government’s $620 million Darlington Upgrade Project.

According to Denita Wawn, CEO of Master Builders Australia, innovation and attention to detail set Bianco Precast apart in this category.

“The client could not speak highly enough of Bianco Precast and their commitment to detail. The sheer size of each precast panel and how they were placed together on this bridge took absolute precision,” Denita Wawn said.

Hindmarsh Construction Australia (SA) took out the Cbus National Medium Density over 5 Dwellings Award for Atira, BlueSky Student Accommodation in Adelaide’s CBD.  

“The workmanship and hands on approach in relation to the individual precast concrete panels is outstanding,” Denita Wawn said.

“Hindmarsh Construction carried out difficult precast work and the internal finishes as well as the builder’s involvement in a lengthy and detailed Value Management process is a credit to them,” she said.

Toyota National Display Home $350,000 to $500,000 was awarded to Scott Salisbury Homes for The Harrison.

Exceptionally designed with stunning street appeal and perfectly adapted to a compact corner allotment, The Harrison displayed an impeccable attention to detail in its many bespoke features. Completed in a 20-week build time, it provides great value for money.

“Scott Salisbury Homes should be proud of their achievement on a national stage,” CEO of Master Builders Australia, Denita Wawn said.
