Tonight the highest honours will be presented to the residential building industry by the Housing Industry Association, at the annual HIA-CSR Hunter Housing and Kitchen & Bathroom Awards.
In total over 60 awards will be presented at Wests City before a capacity crowd of local industry leaders and peers from across the Hunter and Central Coast regions.
Independently judged by industry professionals, the awards acknowledge the talent of builders, designers, suppliers and manufacturers who plan and construct quality new homes, townhouses, renovations, kitchens, bathrooms and more.
The HIA-CSR Hunter Housing and Kitchen & Bathroom Awards recognise the craftsmanship and excellence of HIA members and I congratulate all Hunter Award entrants and finalists.
Each year an exceptional calibre of entries is presented and this year is no different.
Each year an exceptional calibre of entries is presented and this year is no different, a reflection of the hard work and dedication HIA members continue to display. From sustainable initiatives to incredible workmanship, a high calibre of entries were received and we are proud to call these entrants HIA members.
Regionally it has been another sound year for the industry. Latest ABS figures for new home building approvals indicate that activity across the HIA Hunter region continued to remain buoyant in the past year, with strong growth in the multi unit area in particular.
This result demonstrates that low interest rates are facilitating a sustained recovery in new home building, adding to the evidence that our local residential building industry is on a strong footing and this contributes to the long-term prospects for the Hunter region.
For those looking to be inspired by innovative techniques in building as well as the latest trends, the award winners will be featured on the Regional Housing Awards page of the HIA HousingLocal website early next week. To view, visit www.housinglocal.com.au
Those who view the images will appreciate the build quality and design excellence that HIA members are achieving across a range of projects both large and small.
