North Construction & Building was proud to take home the Best Commercial Project ($3-$4m) Award for the Dubbo Courthouse project at last month’s postponed 2021 Master Builders Association of New South Wales, Western Regions Excellence in Building Awards.
Commissioned by NSW Department of Communities and Justice, the Dubbo Courthouse project included the extension of the existing heritage-listed courthouse to provide a new multi-purpose courtroom and associated facilities. The modern extension, designed by Pedavoli Architects, includes a detailed interface between the old and new structures with separate police station access to the courthouse.
‘All of us at North are excited to pick up this great local project win,’ stated Dubbo-based Tom Longhurst, North Regional Construction Manager. ‘The Dubbo Courthouse project was one of the first projects delivered out of our Dubbo office. We couldn’t be prouder of the outcome and looking forward to future accolades for the impressive projects we’re currently delivering across regional NSW.’
It’s exciting times all-round for North. A company who has always considered themselves to be a regional builder, North established it’s Dubbo presence early in 2020 and continues to grow throughout the regional NSW landscape with established offices also in Mudgee and Orange. They are currently delivering a number of great regional projects including St Matthew’s Catholic School Mudgee – Secondary Campus, Gilgandra Library Hub and Plaza, refurbishment of the Canobolas Building on Bloomfield Hospital campus in Orange, and the Line of Lode precinct refurbishment in Broken Hill, to name a few.
‘I am proud of our business history and excited about its future,’ expressed Matthew Cook, North Managing Director. ‘Our growth is being done in a strategic and measured way to ensure our culture and values remain the keystone of who we are and what we do, and our Purpose – In everything we do and say, we are building trust with our clients, subcontractors, employees and in our community – will only be enhanced as we seek to meet and exceed expectations.’
North was founded in 1987 and has grown to become a trusted regional construction company with an award-winning reputation for excellence. They are 100% employee-owned with all shareholders working within the business. They have offices in Dubbo, Orange, Mudgee, Newcastle, Tuggerah, and most recently Brisbane, out of which they are delivering projects in Northern NSW and Southeast Qld.
North has a dedicated Specialist Projects Team delivering works under $3.5m and a major works department overseeing projects up to $50m so is well-placed to deliver both smaller- and larger-scale projects for public and private clients across all commercial sectors. This, combined with a relational method to project delivery, differentiates North from others in the industry.
‘North is a business that genuinely cares and where relationships matter, we are known for a different approach,’ Cook shared. ‘We’re looking for clients, subcontractors and employees all alike to choose North. And for us, that comes down to building with trust.’
