The Master Builders-Bankwest Excellence in Construction Awards has shined a light on WA’s best projects and on women in the industry.

Alongside celebrating grand designs, the night recognised women’s contributions to the Western Australian building and construction sector.

The inaugural Women Building Australia Awards were introduced by Master Builders in 2020, with the program’s main goal being to promote possibilities for women and employers in the building and construction sector.

The awards comprise of three categories; the Consultants-Professionals Award, which was won by Prudence McLoughlin of Land Surveys; Alicia Gangemi of Affordable Living Homes took out the Office-Based Award, and the Onsite-Award was presented to Astrid Vasile, Proprietor of Vasile Build.

Master Builders WA executive director John Gelavis said he was extremely pleased to see such a great response and high calibre of entries, which he described as a testament to the industry.

“There was a time when the building industry was seen as male-dominated, but there has been such a major cultural change, that women are taking up training opportunities and considering construction as their vocation,” he said

“Master Builders’ Women Building Australia Awards recognise people who have made a positive contribution to the industry through leadership, support of diversity and inclusion. These winners have shown commitment to high standards of excellence and lead by example with continuous learning and demonstrating healthy workplace practices.”

Multiplex Constructions took out the top award at the 2021 Master Builders-Bankwest Excellence in Construction Awards.

For delivering WA’s largest data centre, NEXTDC P2 in the Perth CBD, the industry giant earned the 2021 Bankwest Best Project award. This comes on the heels of accolades for their outstanding work on the new WA Museum complex.

The project, which was produced in collaboration with Hames Sharley architects and Pritchard Francis engineers, began construction in December 2019 and was finished in July 2020.

“We were so pleased for the opportunity to partner with NEXTDC to deliver P2 Perth, NEXTDC’s first high-rise data centre in Perth’s CBD. Being WA’s largest data centre, it was a major development, with many intricacies along the way,” Multiplex Constructions WA regional managing director Chris Palandri said.

“Multiplex is so proud to be recognised by Master Builders for our dedication to excellence and continuing to outperform for our clients.”
