Honouring the builders of Queensland’s foundations

26 February 2019

IF YOU’VE built something you’re proud of, now is the time to enter it in to the 2019 Master Builders Housing & Construction Awards.

Highly regarded across Queensland as the industry’s most sought-after accolade, the Awards attract entries from small and big builders alike, with a category to suit almost every type of build.

Master Builders is now accepting submissions for the 2019 Awards and CEO, Grant Galvin, is encouraging companies and individuals to enter.

“The Housing & Construction Awards are the perfect opportunity for builders and trade contractors to get the recognition they and their teams deserve,” Mr Galvin explained.

“When you build in Queensland, you’re building a structure for the future. You’re building the foundations of our future generations and shaping Queensland communities.

“That’s what we’re looking for in this year’s Awards program; projects and individuals that are at the cutting edge of building innovation and quality craftsmanship, and are contributing to making Queensland great.

“If you haven't entered before, now is a better time than ever to have the hard work of your teams and support networks honoured and celebrated.

“From industry recognition and access to a range of marketing tools, to being able to label yourself, your business or your project as an ‘award-winner’ – it’s the kind of accolade money can’t buy.”

All Award submissions are reviewed by independent judges who consider criteria including quality, degree of construction difficulty, external appeal, siting and aspect along with amenities and aesthetics.

There’s a category to suit almost every type of builder, with options available for small, medium and large building businesses, plus speciality tradespeople, apprentices and trade contractors.

Some of the highest accolades include the President’s Award, Project of the Year, House of the Year, Best Residential Kitchen, Best Residential Bathroom and Best Residential Swimming Pool, while Awards like Rising Star, Women in Building and Apprentice of the Year cater for individual entrants.

Master Builders held its first Housing Awards in 1987. In 1988, this program was renamed the Housing & Construction Awards to include the commercial and industrial sectors.

Fast forward to 2018, where more than 800 entries were received from across the state. Select regional winners go on to be judged at a state level and winners from here are shortlisted for the National Building in Excellence Awards.

Entries are now open. Visit mbqld.com.au/hcawards for more information on entry requirements, categories, venues and dates, and conditions.
