John Foster Projects was the recipient of a State Award at the 2013 Queensland Master Builders Housing and Construction Awards. The ABC Regional Radio Studio claimed the honour in the category Commercial Building (office accommodation) up to $5 million.

Innovative construction methods saw the purpose-built ABC Regional Radio Studio constructed to the highest cyclone requirements and beyond, which will enable the region to have communication under any circumstances. John Foster Projects exceeded strict energy and sustainability requirements to ensure that the building will be cost effective for many years. Ironically, the building was constructed during an exceptionally wet season, but remained on time and on budget.
