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.  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 Cement, Concrete & Aggregates Australia (CCAA).  We also have reciprocal 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) combine to deliver a series of industry seminars.  Previous seminars have included presentation on Concrete in Class One Buildings, Concrete in Class Two Buildings and Concrete for Housing - New Insperations.    Further information on upcoming seminars will be posted prior to the event.
