Builder stands out

A BUILDER born and bred in Leongatha won an award at the Master Builders Association of Victoria’s Excellence in Housing Awards 2015 on Friday.
Pete Furlong grew up in Leongatha and attended Leongatha Secondary College. He studied architecture and building at University of Melbourne and established a construction company, Elyte Focus Pty Ltd, in 2009 when he was 28.
The company won the award for best renovation/addition under $200,000 for a project at Merricks.
The project required the addition of a single level extension to an existing residence comprising two bedrooms, bathroom and a theatre type glazed walkway, linking the old with the new.
The MBAV noted, “The project showcases a high level of finish and incorporates highly complex integration of operable electric shutters, sliding doors and retractable motorised curtains. The close working relationship among the builder, the architect and the client has provided an exacting execution of the required design outcomes.”
The award was presented at the MBAV Awards Dinner in Melbourne.
Mr Furlong’s partner Elysia Robb also grew up in Leongatha and is a doctor at Austin Hospital. The couple has two children, Orlando, three, and Jelena, 21 months.
