Celebrating building excellence in Victoria
Congratulations to our Victorian team for winning two awards at last week’s 2022 Master Builders Victoria Excellence in Construction Awards.
Celebrating building excellence throughout Victoria, the Awards showcase exceptional craftsmanship and standards of excellence in the commercial sector of the building industry.
Excellence in Construction of Commercial Buildings $15m-$20m: Frankston Hospital Clinical Teaching & Research Building
Frankston Hospital Clinical Teaching & Research Building was commended for being cleverly constructed on a tiny envelope, with not only the land restricted by its size and surrounds, but also by its topography: a significant incline.
The CTRF building represents a national milestone with Commonwealth Government funds contributed towards the project; it is the first of the government’s promised Healthy Ageing Research Centres.
Excellence in Construction of Commercial Buildings Over $80m: 60 Cremorne Street
Instantly recognisable by its gabled twin peak arches and corium brick exterior, 60 Cremorne Street delivers a clever industrial outer shell with a warm, spacious interior.
This seven-storey, PCA A-grade, 20,000sqm commercial building features winter gardens, a cantilevered feature staircase, a top-level terrace, extensive end-of-trip facilities, and a vast atrium.
Among other standouts, the project features striking architectural design incorporating a cutting-edge, high-performance façade, a future-proofed and adaptable underfloor air-distribution system and access floor, and services capable of expansion.
This project provides 19,690sqm of NLA, parking for 237 vehicles and public-accessible retail spaces. It has an ambitious set of ESD targets, including a 6-star Green Star Design and As Built rating and a 5-star base building NABERS energy rating.
