The 42nd Master Builders Awards for Western Australia were held over the weekend, wherein judges cast their eyes on over 300 housing entries across 29 categories.

While Covid and the knock-on effects continued to bear down on industry, Chief Judge Robert Shaw applauded builders for their grit through the challenges:

“The entries in this year’s awards have surpassed anything our judges expected. It has been a tough 12 months for our industry, so to see such high-quality homes shows how resilient how industry is.”
