Women called to put their best tools forward for award

A STATEWIDE prestigeous award is recognising women can be just as handy with the hammer as men.  

Master Builders has put the call out the call for Queensland's best female building industry participants to enter the Master Builders 2015 Housing and Construction Awards.  

Master Builders' Executive Director, Grant Galvin, said the Women in Building Award was important in showcasing the incredible contribution women make to the building and construction industry.

"Every year we are seeing more and more women enter the industry and this is something Master Builders really supports and encourages," Mr Galvin said.

"Women play a vital role in ensuring we address the looming skills shortage, while promoting ongoing productivity and viability for the industry. We are calling on building industry employers to acknowledge the excellence of standout women in their organisation and nominate them for the Master Builders Women in Building Award."  

The 2014 winner was Julie Nutting from the Gold Coast. Sunshine Coast's own Jeanette Singline was among last year's regional winners. 

In 2014 more than 1,000 entries were received from across the state. Regional winners go on to be judged at a state level and winners from here are shortlisted for the National Excellence Awards.

Nominations close March 31. Visit www.masterbuilders.asn.au/hcawards.
