This Weeks Episode of Home in WA

Geraldton

The Master Builders Association of Western Australia Builders Association has been a great partner of Home in WA. We've seen the MBA at work in Perth, the South West and recently Geraldton and the Mid West.

In our second special feature on Kalgoorlie-Boulder, we meet the Chairman of the Goldfields Esperance Branch of the MBA, John Truman

David Grant discusses the strength of Membership in Goldfields Esperance Branch; the impact on the building industry of conditions that prevail at the time in country areas in this case, the low points and current highs of the mining industry; special construction techniques such as brick veneer instead of double brick; and the steps taken to guard against extremes of climate?

Site theft of building materials is a major issue almost everywhere in WA and the Site Secure programme has now been introduced to Kalgoorlie Boulder with rewards of up to $1,000 for information relating to the taking of building materials from construction sites.

David also asks John Truman about attracting a progressive work force to the building industry and keeping people in the region. The Goldfields Group Training Scheme was set up several years ago to help do just that.

The Goldfields Esperance Branch of the Master Builders Association has its office at 32b Lane Street, Kalgoorlie and enquiries are welcome on 9021 5494.
