History of Newcastle Awards

In 1995, the inaugural Newcastle Master Builders Association Excellence In Building Awards were launched.

The overwhelming success of these Awards, their openness to all the industry and not just members, and their highly regarded credibility, guarantee their place as the region’s peak building industry Awards and act as the unrivalled benchmark for other industry awards.

The Master Builders Association has been the region’s premier building industry organisation for over 140 years having been the voice of the building industry in this region since 1874. It is an independent member of the National Master Builders movement, promoting excellence in the building and construction industry throughout the regions of Hunter, Central Coast, Manning Great Lakes and Oxley.

For the last several years, MBA’s Excellence in Building Awards have been supported by a record number of entries, with the winners announced at the Gala Presentation Evening which is now held at The NEX, Newcastle Exhibition and Convention Center, in September.
