National builder Vaughan Constructions has won the prestigious industry award, the Master Builder of the Year Award at the recent Master Builders Association Victoria Awards.

The awards, which showcase exceptional craftsmanship and standards of excellence in the commercial building sector, also honoured Vaughan with the award for Excellence in Construction of Industrial Buildings for its work on the $165 million Dulux Merrifield Coatings Plant at Mickleham.

Vaughan Constructions Director Mark Byrne said superior ECI project methodology works with the client to achieve the best possible outcome.  

He said ECI (Early Contractor Involvement) meant utilising the builder’s expertise as early as possible in the development process to maximise both cost and operational efficiencies in the design and construction of a building.

"There’s no greater disaster for a client than getting the design they want but one they can’t afford or that ultimately doesn’t meet the desired outcome,’’ Byrne said. 

Vaughan Constructions was engaged under an ECI agreement to complete the base build of Dulux Merrifield (pictured above), a task which was expanded as the project’s design and implementation progressed to also take on responsibility for the completion of the production process fitout.

Dulux Group Project Director, Kevin Worrell, said Vaughan Constructions had completed both the base build and integrated fitout of the Dulux facility which is now the largest coatings factory in Australia and New Zealand. 

Master Builders Victoria CEO, Radley de Silva, praised Vaughan for the Dulux building’s complexity and its ability to remain durable in a harsh, chemical-based environment. 

Vaughan Constructions will now compete at the Master Builders Association National Excellence in Building and Construction Awards at the Adelaide Convention Centre in November.
