Prefab Innovators Honoured at State Awards

This is the second occasion Beaumont Concepts has won the category of Residential Building Design and the third consecutive year Ecoliv Buildings has claimed the GreenSmart Energy Efficiency award making both companies collectively the most awarded residential designer and builder in the area.

HIA awards are held in the highest regard within the residential building community and have grown to become the state’s most distinguished Housing Awards program. The Housing and Kitchen and Bathroom Awards recognise the achievements of those who lead
the way in the design, construction, innovation and technology of housing, kitchens and bathrooms.

Proud recipient of the awards and Director of both companies Ashley Beaumont, said “We’re thrilled to add awards to our trophy cabinet; we truly believe that sustainability and style are not mutually exclusive terms. A small amount of effort can go a long way in creating an efficient and environmentally friendly home,” says Ashley.

The EcoGrid demonstrates how a low impact home can operate when all the elements of sustainable design are considered and integrated into a compact prefabricated home independent of power and water connections. Ashley hopes this prototype will encourage thoughtful living, while addressing issues of future environmental sustainability and self-sufficient living.

Over the years, Beaumont Concepts has also picked up many prestigious design awards, for their beautiful, contemporary and sustainable homes. Ashley indicates that the key to their success lies in great working relationships. “Our approach is always client focused,” said Ashley. “We provide an individual design service and we can design to any brief and budget – and the Breeze Court San Remo projects demonstrates just that”.

An emphasis on beautiful, contemporary and sustainable homes were recognised at the HIA Victorian Awards last Friday 4th November 2016 with local prefabricated home manufacturer Ecoliv Buildings taking out the GreenSmart Energy Efficiency award for the 8 Star off the grid EcoGrid Display home and local building design company Beaumont Concepts awarded Victorian Residential Building Designer of the year.

The perfect pairing of form and function, the San Remo home demonstrates sustainability on a grander scale featuring all the principals of passive solar design. The bold yet restrained façade shows restraint and refinement in design and the luminous interior spaces feature a coastal ambiance to reflect the location.

The EcoGrid display home will progress into the national GreenSmart awards in the category Energy Efficiency which are announced in 2017 in Sydney.
