His premium craftsmanship has set him apart, scoring Chris Smith Construction a hat-trick at this year’s Master Builders Sunshine Coast 2022 Housing & Construction Awards.
The Noosa building company has been on the Sunshine Coast since 2002 and is owned and operated by the man himself, Chris Smith.
His work attracts both local, interstate and overseas clientele, seeking holiday properties and permanent residences.
During the recent Master Builders Awards held at the Novotel Sunshine Coast Resort, Chris collected the coveted BUSSQ Building Super President’s Award for their Tinbeerwah project, Australis, as well as the Langs Building Supplies trophy for Best Residential Bathroom, and Best Residential Pool for Kareela in Little Cove.
“I feel incredibly honoured to win the President’s Award for quality craftsmanship, and I can show how talented the carpenters are that I have working for me,“ Chris said.
“I’d also like to thank all the tradesmen that contributed to the building of this house and to the architect David Teeland from Sealand Architects for entrusting me to bring his vision to reality.“
The winning project, Australis, is arranged in a series of interconnected pavilions that follow the natural topography, connecting the home to the beautiful native forest and surrounding landscape.
The family home boasts big, sliding, glass doors and windows that open onto the greenery.
The builders have used spotted gum wood on all cladding, decks, and exposed beams and flooring, for its bushfire resistant characteristics.
A timber theme is carried throughout with blackbutt feature ceilings and solid oak joinery aligned with polished concrete floors.
“Exceptional quality and attention to detail,“ the judges’ boasted.
“This incredible home exudes rustic charm and is a credit to the team of exceptional trades that helped in bringing this vision to life.”
Chris joined the building trade as an apprentice when he was 15 years old and has never looked back, gaining invaluable knowledge and experience in the last 30 years.
As with any business, it takes time to build strong relationships, which Chris has managed to achieve with a number of architects and clients around the Sunshine Coast.
“I now focus on building architecturally designed houses in and around the Sunshine Coast with client and builder relationship as a huge focus,“ Chris said.
He believes that his relationship with architects has enabled him to succeed in a small town, working hard to ensure the initial vision is delivered with innovative materials, fixtures and fittings, installed with absolute attention to detail.
Liaising with architects, engineers, building designers and interior designers, Chris and his team are able to build strong and trusting relationships with clients providing the highest standard of service throughout the construction process, adhering to timeframes and budgets.
Every member of the team has vast experience in the delivery of extraordinary homes.
“Our incredible team is infused with enthusiasm, positivity and a can-do attitude that makes working with us an enjoyable and rewarding experience,“ Chris said.
“We believe in trust, integrity and customer service. Nothing is more important to us than the relationship we have with our team and clients.“
