Tassie building and construction businesses were big winners at the 2022 National Excellence in Building and Construction Awards.
Tools were down to celebrate the building and construction industry’s best and brightest with Tasmanian businesses walking away as winners in seven categories.
Master Builders Australia CEO Denita Wawn congratuled the winners and finalists for reaching this highly competitive stage.
“The pre-eminent national awards for the industry was the first time it returned to its normal face-to-face format following disruptions from the pandemic.”
The state took out two major award categories: National President’s Award and National Apprentice of the Year.
Master Builders Tasmania CEO Matthew Pollock applauded local Zac Smith on winning National Apprentice of the Year for his high degree of intelligence, a positive attitude and outlook, and a keen passion for work.
“Zac’s outstanding efforts on site were also reflected by his TAFE results. His understanding of the importance of WHS and respecting others on a work site saw him become a sought-after team member and offered additional project responsibilities,” said Mr Pollock.
Vos Construction & Joinery received the 2022 National President’s Award for their work on the My State Bank Arena in Tasmania.
“The My State Bank Arena project encompassing civil, renovation, newbuild and fit-out, was a complex project delivered in a very short time fram.
“Vos Construction & Joinery employed a unique management structure and provided a masterclass of technical skill to overcome construction obstacles,” said Mr Pollock.
Denita Wawn said the annual three-day event culminates in the announcement of the country’s best builders in residential, commercial and civil construction and recognises the projects that have won them acclaim.
“To be in the running for a National Excellence Award, entrants must have progressed from winning awards in their State or Territory and must be nominated by their local Master Builders Association to being judged for a national award.
“The building and construction industry has demonstrated that in the face of adversity, it continues to provide the highest quality outcomes for clients around the country,” said Ms Wawn.
