MBAV Awards 2016
It was a glittering night out for the Figurehead team recently as we attended the 2016 Master Builders Association of Victoria Excellence in Construction Awards at the Crown Palladium Ballroom.
Hosted by MC Tania Zaetta, guests were treated to a sensational three-course dinner followed by entertainment by Aussie music industry icon Kate Ceberano.
This year two Figurehead projects were nominated for an Excellence in Construction award:
- MecwaCare Community Housing Project ($5M - $10M Category)
In order for the client to secure a government grant, this project was successfully completed in record timing, a month in advance of the already aggressive construction program. The grant was secured and we were proud to be able to deliver a quality finished product for an organisation dedicated to providing comfortable and independent living to the financially disadvantaged elderly.
- Opus Apartments Project ($10M -$15M Category)
With a classic European style masonry facade and interiors boasting beautifully unique finishes such as coffered ceilings, distinctive chevron parquetry flooring and marble bench tops and fireplaces, Figurehead were excited to be able to showcase this project to our peers as an example of our ability to complete projects of superlative quality and style.
Both projects were successfully nominated and although we didn’t take home first prize in either category, we are immensely proud of the project teams that worked on these projects and to be included in such a fantastic night.
