Fleetwood Australia’s commitment to excellence has again been celebrated on the international stage, with two First Place wins and two Honourable Mentions at the 2023 Modular Building Institute (MBI) Awards of Distinction.
The MBI Awards of Distinction – announced as part of the World of Modular trade show
and exhibition in Las Vegas – are widely regarded to be the highest honours in the global modular industry.
Fleetwood Australia was judged a winner in the Permanent Modular Education over 10,000 square feet category for the Mackenzie State Special School project and the Permanent Special Application over 10,000 square feet category for the Sydney International Speedway project.
The company was also recognised with honourable mentions for the Albert Park Pavilion project (Permanent Modular Assembly) and the Corrections Victoria Prison Infill Expansion project (Permanent Correctional).
The 2023 results follow Fleetwood winning 10 awards at last year’s MBI Awards of Distinction, the most of any entrant.
Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director Bruce Nicholson said the international recognition was a proud moment for the entire Fleetwood Australia team.
Nicholson said: “At Fleetwood we are committed to designing great and innovative housing and building solutions that meet Australia’s needs.
“To be recognised on the global stage like this is huge thrill for the thousands of Fleetwood employees who live that commitment each and every day.
“Given some of the challenges experienced in the Australian building industry, modular offers solutions that are much faster to completion than traditional builds, while also being extremely liveable and flexible and having important environmental benefits.
“The Awards of Distinction helps showcase Australia’s modular sector to a wider audience and we’re very grateful to the MBI and its judges for endorsing our work once again.
“We’re very proud of each of the nine projects we entered for this year’s MBI Awards.”
