Once a year, the Swimming Pool & Spa Association of Australia (SPASA) holds their Awards of Excellence Gala Dinner to recognise excellence within the swimming pool and spa industry. The prestigious awards on offer range from pool equipment innovations right through to completed spa and pool installations.
The 2016 SPASA Gala Dinner was hosted recently at the Regent Theatre’s Plaza Ballroom, and Stone Hub is proud to have supplied materials for several prize-winning projects. Read on to learn more.
Stone Hub provided this high-end Ascot Vale project with a number of high-quality materials, including Bluestone sawn finish paving, coping, crazy pave, and European-quality glass mosaic pool tiles. As a result of the exceptional end result, the builders of the project – Apex Pools & Spas – came away from the Awards of Excellence night with not one, but two awards. In addition to winning gold for “Best Concrete Pool by a NEW SPASA Builder Member”, the project also took out the title of “Best Landscape Design Featuring a Pool or Spa”.
The swimming pool was specially designed with a raised spa and a negative edge clad, complete with stunning Aqua Mosaic pool tiles. The design also featured glass mosaic in the popular “Cathedral” colour, resulting in a beautiful visual effect. Meanwhile, our Bluestone Crazy Pave added a great free form element.
Apex Pools & Spas also received a high commendation for “Best Residential Concrete Pool Under $50,000”. For this Mornington Peninsula project, which was designed by Steve Taylor of COS Design, Stone Hub provided Bluestone Carbon Honed custom made spa coping, along with seats, a feature wall, a fireplace base, and spa cladding. The result was a stylish and functional outdoor area and pool, with a spa that made great use of Aqua Mosaic “Pacific” pool tiles.
Numerous award-winning projects across the country have relied on Stone Hub as a materials supplier, giving us a reputation for providing superior quality products. Contact us today to learn how we can assist with your next project.
