Top Awards for Buxton 

Buxton Construction has received a number of awards from the Master Builders Association of Victoria (MBAV) and the Australian Institute of Building (AIB).

Completion of Eastern Golf Club 

Eastern Golf Club’s $11 million club house and golf academy was completed in April 2015. Buxton’s involvement commenced prior to the documentation stage to provide input on a wide range of construction, design and structural issues.

“Having Buxton’s expertise around the table early on was a game changer that not only produced substantial financial savings through structural value management but also maintained a clubhouse of exceptional quality. Without such a process in place I don’t believe we would have achieved the result we have. From a client perspective it’s been so refreshing to have more than just a commercial relationship with our builder,” said Ben Telley, Eastern Golf Club’s General Manager.

Buxton Construction has won a competitive tender for a full design and construct contract to build a $7.5 million, two-level structural steel-framed extension for approximately 650 cars to an existing operational car park at Monash University’s Clayton Campus.
