Mackay and Whitsunday Life
Building the dreams of clients is what has kept Fergus Builders going from strength to strength over their illustrious 40-year history.
Taking pride in designing and delivering high-quality new homes as well as commercial and industrial premises for Mackay and surrounding districts, Fergus Builders’ dedication was recognised at the recent Master Builders Housing & Construction Awards, receiving a massive five awards for the Mackay & Whitsunday regions.
Each accolade clearly highlights Fergus’ diverse capabilities on a wide variety of projects, whether it be display homes, community accommodation or industrial facilities.
A highlight of the evening came from receiving the Display Home over $550,000 award for ‘Palmview’, located in Beaconsfield.
The build was carefully designed to incorporate Accessible Housing requirements and Fergus is proud to showcase the final product.
‘Palmview’ is a homely, generously proportioned and positioned house, with the finishes of the display home proof that Fergus take pride in attention to detail and quality workmanship.
Fergus are frequent contributors to the patchwork of Mackay’s urban expanse, their craftmanship on the South Mackay Community Home project receiving Best Use of Steel Frame Housing and Community Accommodation for Specialist Disability, Aged Care and Nursing Homes awards.
The construction of the home adhered to strict guidelines for disability access that was inspected and approved at design, rough-in and final stages.
A unique challenge then came in the form of the Jaws Facility in Paget, for which Fergus was awarded the Commercial/Industrial Building from $5 million up to $10 million award.
Being over 18 meters from ground level to gutter height, the facility is now one of the highest industrial sheds in Paget.
The height coupled with the proximity of the building to rear and side boundaries meant Fergus Builders had to work closely with the neighbouring premises for access when installing wall sheeting and roof drainage to the factory but, with the support of local suppliers and trades, Fergus Builders were able to deliver this project on time and within the client’s budget.
Fergus’ versatility was again showcased through receiving the award for Commercial fit out up to $5 million.
The timeline of the project was critical to allow the client sufficient time to move out of their current premises and into the new office space by a fixed date.
Throughout the project, Fergus Builders were able to facilitate several design and material changes that allowed the project to be completed on time and offer cost savings to the client without taking away from the design intent of the project.
Fergus Builders has been part of the prestigious Master Builders Awards since 2008 and prove their versatility and dedication year on year.
Celebrating 40 years in 2023, Fergus Builders continually proves itself as a leader in providing buildings of high quality, innovative design, and superb value.
