The winners of the 2018 HIA CSR South West Housing Awards were announced at an elegant ceremony on Saturday 15 September 2018, at Black Brewing Co, Wilyabrup.

The event was well attended by local residential building industry representatives, manufacturers and suppliers. Master of Ceremonies Tim McMillan announced over 45 categories throughout the evening, demonstrating the variety and range of our South West builders.
2018’s awards program was well supported by the building community in the South West region, with the highest number of entries since 2012. HIA Executive Director John Dastlik commented, “It is encouraging to see a rise in entry numbers in the South West as it demonstrates the strength and resilience of our members, especially in what has been a difficult time for the industry”.

The winning projects we have seen tonight are a true reflection of the building industry’s commitment to quality construction and design.”
