2019 Master Builders WA Building Excellence Awards

August 12, 2019


The 2019 Master Builders Excellence in Construction Awards were held last Saturday, the 21st of July. Focus Building Company were presented another prestigious award in the category ‘Best Educational Building - $10,000,000 - $20,000,000’.

Project Manager Laughton Savage and Site Manager Graham Teede proudly accepted the award for the Stage 3A works at Mother Teresa School in Baldivis, completed in May of 2019. The project was comprised of multiple stages, with Focus Building Company having previously completed Stage 2 and Stage 3.
From conception through to handover of this challenging, high quality finish build, Laughton ensured the smooth running from one stage to the next. The live environment setting of the school meant each step was to be planned seamlessly to ensure no disruptions to students or teachers.

‘Stage planning in live educational environments and clear communication throughout the construction period is crucial to the success of any school project. Our project team ensured coordination with school hours and school holidays. In particular, utilizing time out of school hours were for louder works, ensuring students could continue learning in a safe non disruptive environment.’ Director David Welsh said, 'Focus Building Company were happy with the quality of the project.'

Leon Slattery, our Architect from Parry and Rosenthal commented on the complexity of the project:
‘Mother Teresa Stage 3a’s unique construction required a high level of proactive coordination and management by Focus Building Company.
It is a highly complex multiple story project which used rammed earth extensively for the majority of the internal and external walls as both the structure and the final finished material. 
A project like this is only successful when everyone works together as a team and it is a credit to Focus Building.
Congratulations, the 2019 MBA Award for Best Educational Building for $10,000,000 - $20,000,000 is well deserved.’
