LOCAL company Hanlon Windows has picked up two major awards at the Australian Window Association (AWA) 2013 Design Awards.
Staged in conjunction with the annual national conference in Canberra, Hanlon Windows was nominated in four categories, taking out two prestigious awards.
The company won awards for best use of windows and doors in residential renovation and best use of windows and doors in new residential construction.
Managing director of Hanlon Windows Chance Hanlon said the awards were highly sought after in the window and door industry.
“We are extremely proud and honoured to have been recognised by the Australian Window Association,” he said.
It is the fourth time in the last five years that the company has won this type of award.
The awards were for a new house at Culburra Beach, constructed by local company Preston and Sons Construction Pty Ltd, and designed by Colin Irwin from i architecture.
Hanlon’s AWS Series of windows and doors used in the project were chosen because of their strength, weather performance and architectural design.
The other award was for a local project for a luxury home at Austinmer with architect Alexander Symes Architecture and G+V Architecture and builder Matt Jolley from MJB North Pty Ltd.
“In current times, building and manufacturing are both tough industries and we continue to compete with overseas imports, multinational companies and still use locally sourced suppliers in our own country,” Mr Hanlon said.
“We are a small family owned business on the South Coast and continue to compete with the other major national manufacturers.”
Mr Hanlon also acknowledged the architects, builders and owners for their contribution to these awards and his staff which continues to produce quality products for the industry.
