At J & S Contracting we are very proud to have been recognised by the Master Builders Association of NSW for outstanding quality and craftsmanship with the following Excellence in Regional Building Awards:

2018 WINNER: Best House Additions, Alterations & Renovations $200,000 - $400,000

Extension to Home - New England

The incorporation of a diverse range of natural materials with a bold design assured that this extension would not only blend with the original home but lift it to the next level, both aesthetically and functionally. With its northern aspect it opened up the home to take full advantage of the view and the changing seasons.

Timber (both recycled and new), recycled bricks, mud bricks, local stone, iron and large expanses of glass were all put to careful use. The tradesmen utilised many lesser-known traditional skills and methods to complete this project and showed careful attention to detail. The finished project was not only unique but was exactly as the owners’ had envisioned.


2017 WINNER: Best Commercial Project up to $500,000 / Heritage Listed Restoration

Williamsburg Restaurant, Tamworth

The challenge for this fitout was to convert the heritage listed Mechanics Institute into a fully-functioning restaurant; complying with modern health and safety regulations whilst being sensitive to the restrictions of working on the 1866-built icon. The fitout was created as a tribute both to the building’s mechanical origins and to the age of the building.

Careful planning and adaptations throughout the project allowed the preservation of the beauty and character of the existing building as well as create a spectacular and functional new space. Through the use of recycled timber, aged steel, etched glazing and heritage fittings; together with modern electronics, the fitout not only captured the creative vision of the owners but also complied with the heritage restrictions.

2013 MERIT: Best Contract House $500,000 - $700,000

New Home Build – Moore Creek

Of a Hamptons style design, this house is predominantly timber construction with the owners having very specific ideas on the house design, materials to be used and colour palettes employed, with a particular emphasis on symmetrical lines throughout.

The judges were impressed that this requirement meant many fixtures and trims such as handrails, friezes, awnings and stairs had to be individually made by the contractor’s tradespeople onsite. The judges said the builder exceeded the expectations of his clients, with high quality finishes and value for money.
