Hamlan Homes and Kane Constructions, with joint venture partner Nicholson Construction, received top honours tonight at the 2022 South West Master Builders Victoria Regional Building Awards.

Master Builders Victoria (MBV) President Mark Little addressed 150 guests and presented the major awards for South West Residential Regional Builder of the Year and South West Commercial Regional Builder of the Year at The Pier in Geelong.

Hamlan Homes was named South West Residential Regional Builder of the Year for a stunning Torquay home.

MBV CEO Rebecca Casson said Hamlan's clients - who spent years buying, renovating and selling real estate - realised building a custom home was the natural next step to achieving their dream home.

"The result is a striking modern home that overlooks the Torquay Sands golf course," Ms Casson said.

"This is their dream home where they can enjoy the lifestyle they have always wanted for their young family."

Ms Casson said the modern facade used a combination of silver top ash cladding, face brickwork, James Hardie Scyon Axon cladding and an aluminium screen to create its striking look.

"The home was built around some non-negotiables for these clients, including tall ceilings, tall benches, windows overlooking the golf course and a three-car garage," she said.

Meanwhile, Kane Constructions and joint venture partner Nicholson Construction were named South West Commercial Regional Builder of the Year for their work on the impressive Ballarat GovHub.

Ms Casson said Development Victoria's vision was to deliver a contemporary office design with high-quality finishes.

"One of Development Victoria's objectives was to provide a modern, integrated fit-out to facilitate workplace efficiency," she said.

"This was achieved by combining open-plan design, creating expansive communal and flexible workspaces and integrating high-level technology, promoting agile working, connection and improved productivity.

"The environment promotes health and wellbeing through its strong connection to timber finishes, lighting, and greenery.

"The project's completion is a significant milestone for Ballarat. The result is a modern and sustainable workplace that sets a new standard for office accommodation."

Hamlan Homes will compete in the Victorian Excellence in Housing Awards on October 14 at Palladium Crown in Melbourne. Kane Constructions-Kane Nicholson Joint Venture will compete in the Victorian Excellence in Construction Awards on August 12 at Palladium, Crown.
