YHA – Byron Bay (2018 Award Winner)

2018 Winner – Commercial Buildings
$5M-$8M – Byron Bay

GCB Constructions were delighted to provide Byron Bay YHA with a vibrant new renovation, design and expansion to their Hostel.

With the demolition of the existing residential structure and facilities at 3 Carlyle street, Byron Bay, we remained mindful of continuity of their accommodation intake whilst ensuring that the site was left both safe, operational and clean.

The renovation included excavation and building of a new basement carpark, brand new 3 level hostel wings (many with fresh, bright new private ensuited rooms), new tropical landscaping to the entire expanded complex and the full replacement of all kitchen facilities, providing a fresh ‘resort-style vibe’ user-friendly open plan for patrons to prepare meals.

The front façade as well as full reception facilities were given a complete makeover ensuring a very modern, welcoming feel.

GCB were also able to offer the hostel improved fire safety standards and accessible facilities throughout.

As Byron Bay YHA is committed to reducing their environmental footprint through a mix of conservation and sustainable practices and services, GCB were able to include organic design features into the project to ensure integration into the finished product.

GCB were absolutely delighted to win the 2018 Master Builders Assoc. of NSW ‘Excellence in Building Award’ for this project in the category “Commercial Buildings $5M – $8M – Byron Bay.
