The best builders recognised

The talent and quality of Riverina builders was out on show at this year’s HIA Brunslea Park Riverina Housing Awards. 

Quality of building, excellent design, use of materials and general professionalism all go into creating a potential winner

Greg Weller HIA southern NSW and ACT executive director

The awards are a chance for builders to not only compare their work and vie for their shot at taking out the top award, which was won by Harrison’s Joinery, but also a chance to socialise.

“Nights such as the annual Riverina housing awards are a wonderful occasion for the entire industry to come together and recognise the great achievements from the past 12 months across a range of categories of building and design,” HIA southern NSW and ACT executive director Greg Weller said.

“Winning a housing award is reflection of significant effort and investment in all aspects of a residential building business, and can really make you stand out from the field.”

The competition was ramped up at this year’s awards night with entries up 30 per cent on last year and attendance up 44 per cent.
