Welcome to Master Concreters Australia
Master Concreters Australia was established in August 2006 to provide a voice for the many contractors working in the concreting industry in Queensland. Although Master Concreters Australia was established to represent concrete contractors, the organisation also represents concrete pumpers, saw cutters, steel fixers and form workers. Providing support to the general public is also paramount to the continued success of Master Concreters.
Our prime role is to raise the overall standard of the concrete industry. This is being achieved through the delivery of industry training, seminars, educational sessions, access to technical information and advisory support to members. Master Concreters also performs an advocacy role, engaging various organisations and Governments at the State and Federal level on issues that affect our members and our industry.
We are closely aligned with other major industry associations both here and overseas including Platinum Sponsorship from Cement, Concrete & Aggregates Australia (CCAA), Associate Membership with New Zealand Master Concrete Placers Association (NZMCPA) and Professional Membership with the American Society of Concrete Contractors (ASCC). These alliances assist Master Concreters Australia in offering our members better benefits and up to the minute industry information.
Concrete Answers Seminars
Master Concreters and Cement Concrete & Aggregates Australia (CCAA) have combined to deliver a series of industry seminars titled Concrete Answers. The first seminar on Concrete in Class One Buildings was held in March 2015 in Brisbane with a second seminar on Concrete in Class Two Buildings held later that year. Our latest seminar is Concrete for Housing - New Insperations and will be held on Thursday 12 May 2016. Contact the office for further information.
