Heisig Constructions won the HIA Queensland Housing Award for most professional medium builder, best display home over $750,000 and an award each for the best custom home worth between $500,000 and $750,000 and $750,000 and $1 million.

George and Carol Heisig started the business in 1970, running it out of their home in Raby Bay.

They started out small, building water towers in central Queensland and housing commission homes at Springwood and Daisy Hill.

Business owner and lead designer Marcus Arber said his in-laws ventured into the custom market after establishing a foothold in the industry.

"They slowly but surely built their reputation as the Redlands developed more," he said.

"We now get a lot of enquiries and are well known all over the greater Brisbane area. That is a testament to our quality and reputation."

The business built its first local home in Cleveland during 1997 and worked on Redland Heights at Redland Bay in 2000.

Its second office was built on Middle Street, Cleveland. They built a factory at Capalaba as the business expanded and recently opened an award-winning display home in Rochedale.

Mr Arber said receiving four awards on one night was a massive achievement for the business.

"To take these awards out in our first year in the large business category is a huge reward for the hard work put in over the years," he said.

"There is a lot of history in our business. We have a lot of second generation trades which is something we are particularly proud of."

Heisig Constructions will celebrate 50 years in the building trade next year.
