THE awards keep rolling in for Wont-
haggi based DAS Constructions picking
up another prestigious Master Builders
regional award for the second year in a
After taking out the 2015 Master Builders
award for the $3.2 million Newhaven College
Trade Training Centre last year DAS Construc-
tions has now won the award for Commercial
Buildings $3 to $6 for the $3.4 million Newhaven
library and administration complex that opened
its doors for term four last year.
DAS started work on this award winning edu-
cational project that comprises a new library, staff
room, administration offices, boardroom, toilet
facilities and storage facilities in late 2014 and
completed the project in July 2015.
The set-out of the building was a challenge
due to the curved radial design and the sloping
site. The joinery and timber beams manufactured
and installed are of a high standard in the library
and staff room, complemented by the blockwork
and engineered timber on the outer walls. The
construction works were completed and handed
over for occupation on time and within project
With more than 25 years DAS Constructions
founder and managing director Dale Sartori has
overseen the completion of many major proj-
ects in the region for the Education Department,
Bass Coast Shire Council, South Gippsland Shire
Council, Rose Lodge Nursing Home, Wonthaggi,
Wonthaggi Secondary College, Korumburra Sec-
ondary College, Southern Gippsland Regional
Health and Phillip Island’s Newhaven College.
What is perhaps the jewel in the stunning
contemporary and cutting edge, architecturally
designed Newhaven College’s crown, the impres-
sive administration building commands an ele-
vated position at the school, close by to the Trade
Training Centre, middle and junior schools.
Mr Sartori is thrilled his company has been
awarded another prestigious award and maintains
it is confirmation of the quality work, skill and
efforts of builders in the local region.
Standing back and taking a look at the mag-
nificent, award winning buildings providing ex-
cellent education to more than 800 students at the
Newhaven College Mr Sartori is proud to part of
the college’s history.
“The college is just so great to work with, al-
ways very supportive and very hands on through
the whole build”, Mr Sartori said.
“I am very proud of this building, it’s such an
unusual shape and being curved it did provide a
real challenge and construction was quite tricky.
But it really is a beautiful building.”
Whilst focusing strongly on Commercial
building projects in the region, including aided
care facilities, retail shop fit outs, medical and
leisure facilities, DAS Constructions is equally
dedicated to building and renovating beautiful
