Last year, we celebrated our Awards of Excellence Gala dinner at Leonda by the Yarra on Friday 18th August 2017. With over 220 people in attendance, we recognised and celebrated the achievements within the Wall and Ceiling Industry and provided an opportunity for people to display their range of skills and talent as a result of the hard work they have demonstrated during 2016 – 2017.  Congratulations to all nominees and winners.  We fielded a record number of entries this year and they were of an extremely high standard.  Everyone should be proud of their efforts. Thank you to our guests for your support on the evening and throughout the year.  We appreciate your commitment, passion and contribution to the Wall and Ceiling Industry. 

Thank you to our SPONSORS:

GOLD - CSR Gyprock, Incolink, Rondo Building Services and USG Boral
BRONZE - BGC Plasterboard Fibre Cement and Knauf
GENERAL - Master Builders Association.

for the evening was Gerard Moran


Well known in the industry, we congratulate Mark on his appointment as a Hall of Fame recipient of the AWCIV.  His willingness to help anybody within our industry is without question, and he has been doing this for many years.  He is passionate, committed and an inspiration.  He has mixed it with the most influential people within our industry, and has mentored both young and old to help them succeed……” Brad Blaze Speed Painter extraordinaire dazzled us with his ability to transform a blank canvas within minutes, into John Lennon, Marilyn Monroe and Mohammad Ali.  It was truly amazing.  The paintings were auctioned and guests were provided the ability to bid.  The offers given ranged between $2,000 and $3,000.  Proceeds from the auction go to our charity Debra Australia.
