Built Holding picked up a Master Builders Association Award at Friday night's ceremony at the Crown Palladium Ballroom for the construction of the Edithvale Seaford Wetlands Discovery Centre designed by MvS Architects. The projects features a raft of sustainable design features such as solar panels, composting toilets and double glazing.

One of the building's most striking features are the Glass Reinforced Concrete panels which were fabricated with using digital fabrication processes. The building is built in the flood plane of the wetlands which it overlooks which present significant construction challenges, not the least of which was the requirement to create minimal disturbance to the flora and fauna of the wetlands.

ESWDC now has a significant pair of awards: In July ESWDC was awarded an Australian Institue of Architects Award for new public buildings.
