Two awards in one night

Whitsunday Times - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

McNEILL Build­ing are prov­ing to be one of the pre­miere con­struc­tion com­pa­nies in the Whit­sun­days af­ter walk­ing out of the Mas­ter Builders home and con­struc­tion awards night in Mackay with not one but two awards ear­lier this month.

They won their first prize for the cat­e­gory of In­di­vid­ual Home up to $275,000.

The home they built that was put up for nom­i­na­tion was a two-bed­room home in Proser­pine with an open-plan.

McNeill Build­ing said what got them over the line was the fi­nal prod­uct and value for money.

They also won The Ken and Nola Clark Per­pet­ual Award for Qual­ity Work­man­ship.

This award ac­knowl­edged ded­i­ca­tion to ex­cel­lence, project man­age­ment skills, client re­la­tions and pro­duc­ing an ex­cep­tion­ally fin­ished project.

McNeill Build­ing was awarded for their out­stand­ing work­man­ship at their Lu­cas and An­drews’s project at Can­non­vale.

The four-bed­room home was sit­u­ated on a slop­ing block – part slab and part stump.

It fea­tured two liv­ing rooms, two bath­rooms and a dou­ble lock-up garage.

McNeill Build­ing own­ers and op­er­a­tors Ross and Trish McNeill said the awards were an ex­am­ple of their over­all com­mit­ment to the build­ing in­dus­try in the Whit­sun­days.

Since found­ing the busi­ness, Mr McNeill has moved into the spe­cialty role of de­sign and es­ti­mat­ing, mak­ing McNeill Build­ing a more on­estop-shop for all your build­ing re­quire­ments.

Mr McNeill has been a qual­i­fied car­pen­ter for 33 years and to­gether with his part­ner founded the busi­ness in 1991; Mrs McNeill said there’s not much Mr McNeill doesn’t know.

“To put it sim­ply, what Ross doesn’t know about build­ing and con­struc­tion isn’t worth know­ing,” she laughed.

This was the third year in a row that McNeill Build­ing en­tered the Mas­ter Builders home and con­struc­tion awards, win­ning House of the Year last year for a home worth up to two mil­lion dol­lars.

The con­struc­tion com­pany has picked up a to­tal of seven awards in the last three years.
