2016 Award Entries & Results

“The Hills Building & Design Awards were established in 1993 as a way for The Hills Shire Council to recognise and promote high calibre design and construction standards across the region. As one of the fastest growing Councils in NSW, the awards play an important role in encouraging the rejuvenation of well-established areas within the LGA and celebrating innovative, sustainable and outstanding design. The awards encompass the high quality of living that the Hills Shire is famous for and that makes it such a desirable place to live.”

We are extremely pleased to be recognised for our passion in designing and building custom outdoor living and entertaining areas. Chris the Director and Design Manager of Aussie Outdoor Living created a functional and usable area for our wonderful clients Mike & Maggie at Glenhaven. Our talented Construction Manager, Matt oversaw the whole project from start to finish, and ensured everything ran smoothly and on schedule with our tradesman Ben and his team, Brad, Jake & Liam, who did an absolutely fantastic job building this project, with an impeccable level of attention to detail.

This is what the judges had to say: “Aussie Outdoor Living have provided their clients a well-designed spacious outdoor living and entertaining area that integrates well with the existing homes layout, finishes and established lawn and garden areas. The pergola and decking provides for an economical addition, that adds to the liveability of the home whilst providing for a functional use all year round.”

AWARD WINNING DESIGN 2016 – GLENHAVEN

“Aussie Outdoor Living has transformed our outdoor area by installing an aluminium deck and pergola to the point that after 4 months we are still in awe of the transformation.

From our first meeting at our home to the final conclusion we were constantly reassured by a highly professional, friendly and talented team. From the initial design from Chris, to a visit to the show room to help visualise the potential and through to the construction we have not had a more satisfying experience from a builder.

We were especially impressed with the building team. Ever polite, they arrived on time, always left the site clean and tidy and had an attitude that nothing we asked for was a problem. They are true craftsman who are proud of their work and believe in producing the highest quality while actually making the experience enjoyable for the client.”
