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.”
