AN ECHUCA builder has been a major winner after taking out an excellence in building award for the revamp of The Bridge Hotel.
H&D Phillips Master Builders took out the Best Commercial Renovation Project up to $1 million at the NSW-based awards in Sydney on Friday night.
The judges were impressed with how builder, Darrell Phillips, married the old with the new seamlessly and maintained the original style and charm.

‘‘These award nights continue to be very popular with our members and showcase the outstanding abilities of Master Builders within this region,’’ Mr Donaghey said.
‘‘I congratulate all winners for their outstanding designs and construction.’’
