AWARDS REFLECT SKILLS
For those looking for someone to build or renovate their home, the Master Builders Housing and Construction State Awards are a good place to start.
The awards are taking place on September 29, with this year set to be extra special as the industry celebrates 30 years of the awards success and prestige.
Master Builders executive officer Grant Galvin said each year the awards continued to attract hundreds of quality entries from across Queensland, and 2017 had been no exception.
“The range of projects reflect the high standards and exceptional skills of Queensland’s Master Builders,” Mr Galvin said. “Judges scrutinised the entrants based on a stringent list of criteria such as quality of workmanship, degree of construction difficulty, external appeal, siting and aspect, and amenities and aesthetics.
“It is a promising sign for the building and construction industry to have so many quality entrants; each entrant has put their business, product and workmanship under scrutiny as part of an extremely competitive process.”
This year, Master Builders welcomed three new award categories for Diversity, the Institute of Building Consultants, and BlueScope Best Use of Steel Frame Housing. “For homeowners considering a new home, renovation or addition to an existing home, stay tuned to find out more about our winning entrants once the awards are announced,” Mr Galvin said. Since 1882, Master Builders has been the voice of the industry, representing the interests of its members and the broader industry.
Mr Galvin said it was the number one source for practical and relevant information to the industry and consumers, and it had helped thousands of builders and trade contractors operate professional and profitable businesses that delivered superior quality outcomes to their customers.
“The outstanding craftsmanship on display as part of the Master Builders Housing and Construction Awards program points to the important role Master Builders plays in nurturing and promoting excellence within the industry and encouraging members to take pride in their work,” he said. “The high standard of workmanship achieved by our members highlights Master Builders’ commitment to equipping members with specialist advice and professional services, which in turn helps members provide unmatched workmanship and attention to detail for clients and homeowners.”
