Bonython Tower, the first of the numerous catalyst developments for Gosford’s revitalisation, has added another string to its bow, with the team responsible for its construction scooping the pool at the 2019 Master Builders Association Newcastle Building Awards.
Stevens Construction took out the award for Commercial Projects over $10M for the landmark tower development, as well as winning Interior and Shop Fit Outs over $600,000 for its commercial fit out, before receiving the coveted Commercial Builder of the Year Award for a reputation of excellence across its large scale commercial projects.
Bonython Property and Investment Group Executive Chairman, Paul Anderson, said design and construction excellence have been paramount to the pioneering development’s success. “We wanted only the best for a development of this calibre and scale that was destined to kick start the re-emergence of the entire Gosford CBD, ” Anderson said. “So, naturally we went straight to the top. “We wanted to work with companies who understood the nature of our local environment and what we were trying to achieve with Bonython Tower and the risks involved if we didn’t get it right. “Working with local entities with a renowned reputation for excellence, including CKDS Architects and Stevens Construction, meant that we were going to deliver the best possible outcome in terms of quality and innovation for a development of this standard. “That level of excellence has not only been recognised by investors, when 90 per cent of sales occurred before construction was even completed and our penthouses set a new record for apartment prices on the Central Coast in 2018, but now recognition has also come from within the industry itself, ” Anderson said. Stevens Construction Director, Steven Mailey, is proud to be recognised for construction excellence on this landmark building. “The Bonython project offered an opportunity to showcase our 31 years of experience and outstanding abilities in large scale commercial construction projects, ” Mailey said. “The development has a strong focus on sustainability, innovative street activation features, and is the tallest building in the local landscape. “The office suites and shared facilities have been cleverly designed to promote collaboration and cater to a wide range of businesses, while providing high quality spaces and amenity, all of which we were proud to deliver to the highest standards. “Bonython is in a class of its own and I’m proud that Stevens Construction has been recognised for our role in bringing this outstanding development to life, ” he said. The 14-storey, luxury mixed use Bonython Tower development includes 1,200sqm of commercial space, 54 boutique apartments, two luxury penthouses and has an event and dining venue, The Bon Pavilion. Stevens Construction is set to commence construction of Bonython Group’s next luxury Gosford development, Ravello, in the coming weeks.
