NEW SOUTH WALES

PRESIDENT’S FOREWORD

In a soon to be released Master Builders Strategic Review of the Building & Construction Industry, the Association identifies what it sees as the key issues and challenges for our industry in the next 15 years. These include demographic change, training of the future workforce, and the impact of technological changes on the industry. The review indicates Australia will have a national population of just under 30 million people by 2030. The shape of the population will also change, in that, Australia will age, generating change in the construction outcomes for the economy— a different built environment on the demand side, and an older construction workforce on the supply side. The implications are simply more retirement and leisure living, community and personal care as well as the more general task of better equipping the built environment for an older population. Given the continued densification of our major urban centres, Australia can also expect to see a proliferation of high-rise apartment buildings in key cities, as living in a detached house close to the city will become increasingly (that is, financially) unattainable. Ross Mitchell

President of Master Builders Association of NSW

Building Information Modelling (BIM), 3D printing and prefabrication are developments that are likely to lead to some replacement of labour with capital. Prefabrication and 3D printing are much less labour intensive and will require different skill sets than traditional construction methods. So how do we see the industry in NSW? NSW is number one in terms of dwelling starts and housing finance commitments, and NSW is the nation’s number one economy. Our biggest growth has been seen in multi-unit developments / apartments, with solid growth also in detached housing. As far as the NSW commercial construction sector, overall non-residential construction is forecast to return to levels not seen since the 1980s over the next three years. Coupled with the strong investment in infrastructure spending from both the State and Federal governments, many opportunities in engineering /civil construction are also forecasted. While building and construction boosts the broader economy through the multiplier effects, the industry also benefits from increased business, consumer and investor confidence which is a key feature of a strong economy. It is important to note that NSW has had: • The strongest retail spending of any state or territory; • Strongest population growth (key driver of residential construction); and • One of the lowest unemployment rates of any State in Australia. It is against this backdrop, an industry with many opportunities that we acknowledge and celebrate excellence in the housing and commercial construction sectors of our industry in the Hunter Region. This year the industry has once again produced magnificent quality and exceptional levels of construction — and I might add, we have had a record number of entries. I would like to share with you some of the statistics that go into running such an event that we are enjoying this evening. 4 judges commenced full-time judging in June this year — and each building project entered was visited and a site inspection conducted. The construction value for all of the entries received this year equated to some $405 Million — an extraordinary amount and an extraordinary feat for the judges to view in this very important part of NSW. Thank you to the judges, and the sponsors, who not only support this evening’s presentation, but also the MBA and industry most generously. On behalf of the Master Builders Association of NSW I congratulate all the entrants and winners of the 2016 Excellence in Building Awards, and I wish you all the best for your future endeavours.

FOREWORD

I would like to welcome our Dignitaries, all Master Builders and our guests to this the 22nd year of the Excellence in Building Awards for Newcastle, and the Hunter Region. It gives me great pleasure to see the building and construction industry on such an upward spiral. The Newcastle skyline is dotted with cranes, and construction is on the increase with 1200 new apartments to hit the market in the next few years, all due to the revitalisation of the inner city with higher density and heights being allowed. With a 70% increase in construction in the last 12 months to $875 million, and a total of $3 billion in the past five years, we will see Newcastle transform from a great regional city into a global city. There are exciting times ahead. Peter Di Prinzio Outgoing President of Newcastle Master Builders Association

So saying, all this could not be accomplished without the building and sub contractor teams in our region. Each year our industry delivers new challenges in design, construction and materials, and tonight serves as a showcase of the exceptional quality of our Master Builders and Contractors. Congratulations to the entrants and winners of this year’s Excellence in Building Awards. Our congratulations also go to The Young Builder of the Year, and Apprentice of the Year. I would like to thank the Sponsors for their support of this great event, and to the judges, who offer their time each year. I would also like to thank the Newcastle Master Builders Board for the help and guidance throughout the past two years of my term as President. It has been an honour to serve and represent you as President. As my term comes to an end I would like to wish our new incoming President Matthew Haines all the best for his term. I can assure you all that the Association is in good hands going forward. Please join with me in welcoming our new President Matthew Haines as I present him with the President’s badge.

FOREWORD

Being elected as the President of the Newcastle Master Builders Association is an honour, and I am looking forward to the role of representing our members over the next two years. I would like to acknowledge the commitment and dedication that Peter Deprinzio has displayed throughout his term as President of Newcastle Master Builders. We also see the stepping down from our Board of Directors: Barry Grainger – Past president, Life member and director for 23 years. Simon Webber – Past President, director for 9 years. Garry Sheppard – Director for 5 years. This has allowed for the following new Directors to take up positions, and we welcome their input and enthusiasm. Andrew Parker – A E Parker Builder Matt Sharpe – Mavid Constructions Pty Ltd Joel Skelton – Skelcon Pty Ltd

Matt Haines

Incoming President of Newcastle Master Builders Association

2016 has seen strong growth in both the residential and commercial sectors of our industry with the completion of the law precinct on Hunter Street, commencement of Newcastle University’s inner city Business and Law Faculty, the West End Transport Interchange and the numerous residential developments being undertaken being just a few of the major projects currently changing and rebuilding the face of our inner city. Another iconic development for Newcastle in 2016 is the removal of the heavy rail corridor. It is well under way now with draft proposals and public feedback on this land shaping the way for further strong growth in the inner city. The residential sector of our industry has been strong with renovations/additions noticeable in most areas, and the ever-expanding new housing market spreading further geographically with increasing land release and population growth. Strong growth has also fuelled demand for labour and our Newcastle MBA Group Training Association has seen a marked increase in apprentice numbers across all trades, which will be a valued addition to our local industry in the years to come. Tonight’s awards showcase the high level of quality and professionalism seen in our region. This extends from the principle builders, associated trades and suppliers,right through to professional services. On behalf of Newcastle Master Builders Association, I would like to extend our appreciation and thanks to the sponsors of the 2016 Excellence in Building Awards. Congratulations to all the entrants on setting such high standards that are clearly displayed in the projects entered. Thank you again and please enjoy tonight’s celebrations.

Initial budget concerns were overcome with “intensive value engineering” studies being completed to allow the project to proceed to construction phase. Considerable challenges were encountered during the course of the construction including the five-storey cast concrete tower in the centre of the building.

While closely matching the look of the original facility, the sizeable $18 million extension was a model of co-operation on North’s part, delivering cost savings that enabled more to be done. Despite winning the job by competitive tender, North provided a prototype bedroom that assisted all parties to produce optimum results, and it shows. The project is a credit to the project team, and to North for its continuing commitment to excellence. It is an example for the industry, not only producing a state-of-the-art aged care facility, but coming in on budget and eight weeks ahead of program.

Interior & Shop Fitouts Under $500,000 CORE PROJECT GROUP Phone 02 4016 0338 Project Knight Frank Office Fitout, Newcastle West In this project, Core effectively demonstrates how to achieve outstanding fitout that is tuned to an ‘outsidethe-box’ building footprint. The Gateway is a complex shape with unorthodox façade treatment, and the Knight Frank offices on the ground floor have a feel that is in keeping with the building itself. The design element, which had to match the interior with the feel of the curved facade, was challenging, but the result is exemplary. The quality of the workmanship and materials shows what can be done when a contractor is driven by results rather than just the bottom line.

Natural lighting from front and rear is used to the full, and access paths are ergonomically creative. Workmanship is excellent in style and detail. The innovative and beautiful circular stair creates a centrepiece that sets this job apart from any other. The judges congratulate Core on adapting the original concrete stair to this excellent finish that required the highest level of skill and confidence.

As luck would have it, PDA won the contract and then won the confidence of the client with the delivery of a sensitive, thoughtful and very attractive trio of connected buildings. To make it all work it was necessary to marry various floor structure types while retaining the feel of a single edifice. The end result is a welcoming, homely complex that has a contemporary, expensive feel. PDA continues to impress the judges.

Commercial Projects Over $10 Million NORTH CONSTRUCTION & BUILDING Phone 02 4323 2633 Project Mariners Centre of Excellence, Tuggerah Architect/Designer MSK Architects North has created the most significant office building in the Central Coast Lakes region. Much of the ground on the site was reclaimed wetland, necessitating significant treatment before stability could be assured. The project was fast-tracked, so North responded, not by sourcing off-site fabrications, but by using advanced formwork solutions and by staging pours innovatively and cleverly to reduce stripping and movement times. Further time saving was achieved by using the Western Australian Frameset exterior wall system in place of conventional curtain walling. With the building quickly weatherproofed floor-byfloor, service and finishing trades were able to work unhindered. The judges made this award on the basis of North’s seamless methodology, and the ability to deliver a project like this on time and within budget. Sponsor

Adaptive Re-use of a Historic Building AUSTRALIAN HERITAGE RESTORATIONS Phone 0427 249 455 Project Northumberland House, Newcastle Architect/Designer EJE Architecture This old institutional building that now belongs to the University of Newcastle, was a case of renovate or pull down. Fortunately for the university, Chris Bart was engaged and the building was not only saved, but made future-proof by largely invisible measures that allowed the creation of a contemporary style ground floor gallery together with studios and offices upstairs. Australian Heritage Restorations had to stiffen and stabilise the building, repair crumbling and unsafe elements, create additional loadbearing members and waterproof the masonry, all in a manner that is not visible to the users and visitors. Australian Heritage Restorations have, at least, doubled the life of this old landmark structure.
