The company has also signed up a number of new projects, including two new blocks of townhouses and three new lots of architecturally-designed homes. Hunter Builders recently built two homes that will be entered in the upcoming Master Builders Awards (MBA).

Hunter Builders was recently recognised at the 2016 MBA, where the company’s project received the accolade for Best Individual Home in the $451,000– $550,000 category.




When it comes to building the home you want and obtaining an expected customer service that one would expect from a local builder, why should you have to pay through the nose? Thanks to being members of a semi-national network, and with the purchasing power equivalent to a top national builder, your local Queensland Independent Builders Network (IBN) member can deliver what you want, when you want, at the price you would expect to pay, and pretty much where you want, from city, to coast, to country! You can have the best of both worlds, because IBM members keep their margins down while still providing the security of a large builder, and always deliver superb, bespoke customer service.

Summer Daze Pools is a family-owned and -operated concrete pool building company that has been servicing the families of South-East Queensland for many years. The owners of the company, Steve and Anita Zaplin would now like to give back to the community, particularly about the importance of pool safety. Summer Daze Pools has approached a chain of swim schools with the intention of sponsoring safety equipment and offering pool fencing. The company is currently working on a fantastic joint venture that will create awareness and educate the public on the best ways to keep your pool safe.

“All we would love to achieve is a more proactive, instead of reactive, approach to the infant drowning debate/statistics. If we can gain exposure through the swimming schools to both parents and children, then hopefully together we can all make a difference,” Zaplin says.

H4 Living has introduced a range of newly-developed materials, which greatly improves the company’s building science technology. Most current insulation materials tend to perform poorly when controlling heat, however the new materials in H4 Living’s building system can reflect up to 97 per cent of radiant heat. Unlike most traditional homes, the results offer homeowners truly exceptional comfort at great value.

H4 Living is continuously finding new ways to provide healthier and safer homes to its clients. This new, fibre-free insulation technology provides excellent acoustics to a home, and it has an exceptional barrier that protects against conductive heat, humidity and vapour penetration. The indoor air quality of a home is also improved when used in conjunction with a filtered natural air ventilation system. It maintains indoor humidity and stabilises temperature, which results in a healthy and comfortable home. For more information, visit the company website.
