Celebrating the best in West. The Rural Building Co. acknowledged.

When it comes to celebrating the best home designs across WA, you can’t go past the HIA CSR Western Australian Housing Awards.

Following many rounds of regional awards over several months, last Friday the state-wide award ceremony was held and we delighted to share that the Rural Building Co. was presented with numerous awards.

All of these awards don’t just fill up our award shelf – they give you the reassurance that you are working with a devoted team that’s focused on delivering high-quality design, construction, and exceptional customer service.


We are so proud to receive the Golden Key Award for Western Australian Display Home of the Year – Vasse for our Daintree Retreat as well as Project Home of the Year for our clients Gidgegannup home.

When you look at the Daintree Retreat, it’s not hard to see why it keeps winning awards. Having already been awarded HIA Best Display home at the South-West regional awards and at the 2023 Master Builders-Commonwealth Bank Building Excellence Awards earlier this year, this beautiful home has been recognised for its fresh rural design and elegant connection to natural surroundings.  

Our client’s home in Gidgegannup, based on The Stonewood design, was recognised as a home that enables a modern lifestyle through its simple refined layout. The Project home category acknowledges homes where is essence comes from a home design you’ll see on our website and personal modifications and changes made to suit the way you want to live.

We are also proud to be finalists in the Project Home of the Year category for our homes in Hay & Yallingup Siding as well as finalists in several other categories, on what was an inspiring afternoon recognising great home design in our beautiful state of WA.

No matter where you choose to build our teams across the state have been recognised for their commitment to design and construction excellence. You can have peace of mind knowing that your home will not only be well-built but also thoughtfully designed to suit the location and blend seamlessly with the landscape, making you feel truly at one with your surroundings.

Our growing number of awards is a testament to The Rural Building Co.’s unwavering dedication to quality, innovation, and superior client satisfaction.
