40 greensmart 2009 Builder Jim Margach is the founder of Cairns-based Gateway Constructions, and his company has won the 2008 HIA GreenSmart Resource Efficiency Award for its unique brand of housing. The new prefabricated building system is called the Takeaway range, and comprises a number of modular designs that includes the Maleny residence in Holloways Beach, for which the award was won. 'The Takeaway range is fabricated and assembled in Gateway Constructions' Cairns factory. The manufacturing process sees the homes completed right down to the plumbing, wiring and internal and external finishes,' Jim explains.
