LAST year, they took out a national Housing Industry Association (HIA) award and earlier this year added a regional award from the Master Builders Association of Victoria (MBA).
Now the local award-winning design and construction company, Beach House Constructions, has added a State MBA award after the winners were announced at a glittering event in the Palladium Ballroom at Crown last Friday night.
On July 2 this year, Beach House Construction owners, Mark and Melissa Plant and their family, were delighted to be named regional winners in the Best Custom Home $300,000 – $400,000 category for their ‘Cape Woolamai Dunes’ project, at Cape Woolamai, in the MBA South East Regional awards.
But to then take out the state award in that category at Master Builders Association of Victoria’s Excellence in Housing Awards last Friday was an even bigger thrill.
“We’re absolutely delighted to get recognition at this level,” said customer liaison and marketing officer for the family business, daughter Amy Plant.
“It ticks all three boxes now with the national award last year from the HIA and the regional and state awards from Master Builders of Victoria.
“We’ve been building on the Island for the past 15 years and at Inverloch for the past 10 years, but we have projects right across the region, from Wilsons Prom to Phillip Island and inland as well.
“We do have a set of standard plans but we specialise in designing and building custom, sustainable homes to the client’s requirements, on their site from the ground up.”
The MBA’s Excellence in Housing Awards showcase the outstanding craftsmanship and professional standards of the association’s member builders and is a highly sought-after accolade within the industry.
But don’t just take our word for it. Here’s what the MBAV had to say: Builder: Beach House Constructions. Designer: Bec Koplick.
“The project brief was to deliver a compact home suited to the location that subscribed to the ethos of quality affordability, energy efficiency and sustainability. Making the most of the exquisite location, this striking home with minimal, industrial feel, boasts a 6-star energy rating, is heavily insulated and has double-glazed windows, a 5kW-power system, water tanks, low VOC paints and water efficient tapware. The upstairs features an expansive kitchen, living and dining room that flow out to a feature-suspended-slab deck. The main bedroom and bathroom enjoy views from this first floor and downstairs the guest wing has two bedrooms and a bathroom.”
The home showcases how innovative and versatile Beach House Constructions have become.
“The owners of this home came to us with an intelligent view of implementing best sustainable practices as well as producing a unique design with the end result of a home that has wow factor,” said Mark Plant.
“The Cape Woolamai Dunes project is a unique project and the Beach House Constructions team is incredibly proud of the finished product; the quality and continuity of the local trades and suppliers made this project a dream.”
Mark and Melissa Plant, with a combined experience of 55 years within the building industry have now been joined by daughter Amy and Charlie, who is undertaking a carpentry apprenticeship. They’re here to stay as a local a local building firm.
They attribute the on-going recognition received from industry bodies as testimony to an ethos developed some 27 years ago, in their endeavour to design and build homes that they can be not only feel proud to put the company’s name to but would have a positive effect on the built environment.
