It seems that concrete is taking on a new significance synonymous with beauty, elegance and sustainability thanks to a popular Sunshine Coast based firm who has scooped a major award at the Master Concreter’s Association of Queensland, (MCQ), Excellence in Industry Awards held at Brisbane Town Hall on Saturday night.

Honed and Polished Concrete has been awarded the Boral Best Decorative Project Award for its work on a stunning domestic property in Noosa. The architecturally designed home showcases a diverse range of concrete finishes

Christopher Bradley from Honed+Polished Concrete says the project was sensational to work on.

“A result like this only happens with the cooperation of a talented builder, architect and concreter, and everything came together on this project.”

The design specification required a 32mpa polished blend with CCS “Lychee” pigment to give a look similar to wet concrete when polished. The floor finish has been produced through a propriety system designed by Honed+Polished Concrete referred to as ‘DiAMONDFLOOR’.

MCQ CEO David Lingard congratulated the Honed+Polished Concrete team.
“The quality of the polished floors and stairway were finished to an extremely high standard. The interior work was complimented by various decorative concrete applications to the external property which connects the total concrete design concept.

It was the overall quality and standard of finish delivered on this signature project that reflected the high standards and attention to detail delivered by Honed+Polished staff that clinched the Award for them”.

The results achieved on this project clearly display the stunning affect that can be achieved in the domestic construction market using concrete as the principal building material.

Mr Lingard says all entries in this year’s competition highlighted the flexibility of concrete and its role into the 21 st century.

“The outstanding level of competition this year highlights the huge developments within the industry. As a profession, the emphasis on further training and development of the workforce is readily on display in the projects completed by Master Concreter members.”

Mr Lingard says many of the projects entered in this year’s Awards are indicative of the ever developing techniques used to achieve visually stunning concrete finishes.

 “These projects represent a sample of how concrete, our most trusted and sustainable building product has broken through the cold barrier. More and more people are switching onto the potential for creativity and sustainability with this versatile material. This showpiece project undertaken by Honed and Polished Concrete exemplifies the future of design in this century. Well done ”
