Five projects recognised for excellence in construction
Buildcorp was a five-time winner at the Master Builders (MBA) ‘NSW Excellence in Construction Awards’ on 31 October 2015. The prestigious MBA awards recognise projects which have successfully solved complex construction challenges and incorporated creative innovations to a deliver product to the highest quality.
These five awards are in in addition to the two MBA awards (regional and state) that Buildcorp’s own Queensland office fit-out received earlier in 2015, taking the total number of MBA awards that Buildcorp has won up to 57.
Buildcorp Managing Director Tony Sukkar said: “We are delighted to have been awarded by the MBA for our excellence in construction across these projects which is the result of our commitment to collaboration, safety and creative thinking.
“We are particularly grateful to our clients and all the stakeholders involved for trusting us to deliver their projects and for working with our teams in such a collegiate way. Our teams are at the heart of what we do, and these awards acknowledge their exceptional performances and expertise which delivers real value for our clients.”
