If you've been to Canberra recently, you might have noticed the striking new Vibe Hotel at the Canberra airport. The $44 million hotel development from Construction Control was recently awarded the Project of the Year at the 2016 Master Builders and Cbus Excellence in Building Awards.
Construction Control has won the Project of the Year award three times in just four years. Construction Control’s work on the Vibe Hotel was also recognised with the award for a commercial project valued between $20-$50m, while J & J Interiors won an award for the interior finish in the Vibe Hotel’s striking black and white atrium.
Kirk Coningham, Executive Director of Master Builders ACT, says the judges were impressed with the architecture, design and construction of the Vibe Hotel, which reflect Canberra’s history, urban setting and natural surroundings.
"Construction Control’s expert delivery has resulted in a new destination that will attract visitors and residents with its timeless design, attention to detail and high quality finishes," Coningham said.
"Importantly, the Vibe Hotel was an economic driver for our city at a time when the construction sector was slowing, and created 600 jobs during the construction phase. The Vibe Hotel adds strength to the case for direct international flights into the ACT, and demonstrates the enduring value our industry delivers to the Canberra community."
