WA home builder named Australia's best
Giorgi Exclusive Homes' winning entry.

Western Australia-based builder Giorgi Exclusive Homes has been awarded the top prize at the Housing Institute of Australia’s national awards.

The HIA announced today that Giorgi had won the Australian Home of the Year award, as well as the top prize in the Australian custom-built home category.

The HIA Australian Housing Awards, which are a partnership with building products manufacturer CSR, cover 21 separate categories, with the winners selected from a range of state-based finalists.

The judges said Giorgi’s home was perfectly suited to Perth’s Mediterranean climate with well-designed living spaces that offered privacy and comfort across different zones.

WA’s Devrite Constructions won the townhouse/villa category, while Talwood Constructions was awarded the special purpose housing project prize.

Other WA-based winners included Dale Alcock Homes, which was named best Australian professional major builder and Dale Alcock Home Improvement, which came out tops in the renovations category.

Amarex Renovations and Additions won the small renovator/builder category.

HIA managing director Shane Goodwin said this year’s entrants were of a particularly high standard.

“Over 3,000 individual entries are submitted each year,” Mr Goodwin said.

“To be selected as a finalist is a great achievement in itself, while tonight’s winners have reached the pinnacle of recognition by their peers for excellence for workmanship, innovation and design in residential building.
