Leading WA Property and Construction company, Pindan, has taken out top honours, coming home with four awards from the recent 2016 Master Builders-Bankwest Kimberley/Pilbara Building Excellence Awards.
Pindan was named the overall winner of the Best Commercial Building in the Kimberley/Pilbara as well as in the categories of Best Commercial/Industrial Buildings ($2,5m to < $6,5m), Excellence in Innovative Cladding and Excellence in Roofing at an awards dinner held in Broome on Saturday 14th May for outstanding work on its Fitzroy Crossing Replacement Courthouse project.
The $4.2m project was constructed for Building Management and Works over a nine-month period and was completed in July 2015.
Designed by Sandover Pinder Architects, the contemporary complex replaced a dated facility and delivered a significant improvement to the justice infrastructure available in the West Kimberly region.
Pindan Contracting Managing Director, Mr Tony Gerber, said input from local residents and judiciary helped to ensure the final design blended seamlessly with the existing community.
“Feedback from the local community influenced many design aspects including covered verandahs, permanent shade structures in the landscaped grounds and the use of local native plants and trees,” Tony said.
“Natural light and local art were also used throughout the complex to promote a sense of calm and openness and the courthouse was specifically planned to complement the newly constructed Police station (also constructed by Pindan).”Tony Gerber, Managing Director, Pindan Contracting
