Time to honour builders who have gone above and beyond

16 February 2022

It’s time to honour their quality craftmanship and hard work in the Master Builders Housing & Construction Awards 2022.

The building and construction industry is well-known for going above and beyond in both good times and when they face a challenge, and the last two years have been no different.

Now it’s time to honour their quality craftmanship and hard work in the Master Builders Housing & Construction Awards 2022.

Entries are now open for the prestigious awards, which continue to attract hundreds of entries from across Queensland.

In its 35th year, the annual accolades celebrate businesses and people at the forefront of building innovation.

Master Builders CEO Grant Galvin said the Housing & Construction Awards are the perfect opportunity for builders and trade contractors to get the recognition they and their teams deserve.

“When you build in Queensland, you’re building a structure for the future,” he said.

“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.

The Master Builders Housing & Construction Awards are not just about houses and projects – they recognise the brightest stars in the industry too.

There are categories to suit all sectors as well as awards for apprentices, women doing great things in the industry, and up-and-coming builders.

Gold Coast carpentry apprentice, Liam Carey from Kai Konstruct said he was blown away when he won last year’s Queensland Apprentice of the Year award.

“I felt like all my hard work was paying off and people are recognising it. For Master Builders to even think of me being in the running for the Queensland award, that just blew my mind,” he said.

Liam was joined on the podium by Women in Building award winner Andy King and 2021’s Rising Star Christopher Symons.

Some of the highest accolades include the President’s Award, Project of the Year and House of the Year.

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.

Regional winners go on to be judged at a state level and winners from there are shortlisted for the National Building in Excellence Awards.

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

Entries are now open. See our Housing & Construction Awards pages for more information on entry requirements, categories, venues and dates, and conditions.
