CASEY Sharpe Constructions Hotondo Homes has been nominated for two 2014 Brand SA Regional Award.
Jenna Lawrie and Casey Sharpe show why their outdoor entertainment area was named HIA’s Outdoor Project of the Year; they are hoping this success can continue on through the Brand SA awards later this year.
The local builder is up for the Telstra Small Business award and the Department for Manufacturing, Innovation, Trade, Resources and Energy Innovation award.
Judging will be conducted by a panel of regional and industry representatives and each award will be awarded to the business, group or individual who shows a great deal of community contribution and success.
Casey Sharpe said the Brand SA regional awards will be a new experience for them.
“It will be great to be able to see what other businesses are supporting regional SA and how they are doing it,” he said.
“I think it’s a good thing for businesses and organisations to be recognised andrewarded.”
The SA Regional Awards are held annually to celebrate and showcase the achievements of individuals, groups and organisations that have made significant contributions to regional SA.
The program provides a benchmark for excellence by publicly recognising the achievements and success of those who make a difference in the state’s seven regions.
Casey Sharpe Constructions Hotondo Homes were awarded the coveted major award of “Outdoor Project of the Year” at the HIA – CSR Housing Awards last year.
They also walked away with “Custom Built Home of the Year” and were highly commended for SA Country Builder of the Year.
A huge feat for a small business.
In May this year Casey Sharpe Constructions represented SA at the National HIA – CSR Housing Awards, though they didn’t walk away with the big awards, Casey said it was a great opportunity to network andabsorb advice from large building company owners.
“It was a great experience andachievement for a smaller building company like ourselves,” he said.
