GemLife Highfields’ multimillion-dollar Country Club took top honours at the prestigious Master Builders Queensland Housing & Construction Awards 2019 in the Community Service Facilities category.
Held in Toowoomba last Friday night, the awards honour the year’s best building and construction projects across the Downs and Western region. The win for the Highfields clubhouse, which was officially launched in February this year, marks GemLife’s second housing and construction award for its new over 50s lifestyle resorts.
GemLife Highfields’s resort-style country club delivers exceptional recreational and leisure facilities for its over 50s community. It provides a lifestyle hub for its residents, offering everything from a heated indoor swimming pool, floodlit tennis court, covered championship-grade bowling green and ten pin bowling alley, to cinema, library, bar and cafe.
Adrian Puljich, GemLife CEO & Director, said the single-level clubhouse, was designed to support active, engaged living for its community.
“We take great pride in the Highfields clubhouse winning top honours in the Community Service Facilities category. It validates all the hard work our team put into the concept, design and construction of this very special facility,” he said.
“We set out to shake-up expectations and deliver something new and fresh in the retirement space. The Highfields clubhouse has done exactly that. It gives our residents maximum opportunity to connect, engage and enjoy a quality lifestyle.”
The Master Builders’ Housing and Construction Awards celebrate the achievements of those at the forefront of building and construction, recognising the year’s most outstanding projects across Queensland. The Master Builder’s Downs and Western regional award automatically progresses GemLife Highfields to the State finals to be held in November.
GemLife launched in late 2016 and now has six over 50s resorts across Queensland, Victoria and New South Wales.
