Bundy's builders are best in state

BUNDY construction companies continue to build the region’s reputation for fine homes with a dominant performance at the prestigious Master Builder State Housing and Construction Awards.

Steve Coates Construction, Jeff Lennox Builders, and Snitzco shared five awards at the Brisbane event, with four of those five built in Bargara.

Mr Lennox said the area would benefit from the award-winning buildings.

“It is quite significant – it will put Bargara on the map with quality buildings,” he said.

Steve Coates Construction received recognition for a two-year project to build a three-storey home at Kelly’s Beach.

The company took the accolade for an individual home between $2.5 million and $3 million and an outdoor living and landscaping area.

He said the eco-friendly house had specially designed lighting to ensure it had no impact on nesting turtles.

Mr Lennox’s company was awarded in the sporting and community services facilities up to $4 million for the Bargara Cultural and Community Centre, and for tourism and hospitality facilities up to $8 million for the Bundaberg Airport Terminal.

The main construction of the airport took 15 weeks, with challenges including the timeframe for building, maintaining its operation during completion and infrastructure improvements.

Mr Lennox said plenty of design went into the Bargara Cultural and Community Complex to ensure it was unique.

“It had a complex roof layout, it was visually appealing with multiple external finishes to convey a seaside theme, and intricate flooring systems with etching and stainless steal inlays,” he said.

Snitzco’s Bargara Silverpoint Apartments won the category of residential high-rise over three storeys and up to $15 million.

“It was a great feeling to receive such a prestigious award recognising the substantial effort and accomplishment of not just Snitzco, but all parties involved, especially our valued clients being Judith and Bob Pidcock,” Snitzco construction manager Paul Plasto said.
