A great builder will have...lots of awards!
Important because; Awards from a recognised industry association, demonstrate and confirm that the builder is recognised as one of the leading builders in the state.
Check for awards in construction excellence, customer service and building practice. Building industry associations in Australia are Master Builders Association and Housing Industry Association. Many builders enter into these award categories, so if your builder has finalist or winning awards, it means they rank top 1,2 or 3 against many other builders.
