IBN Builder of the Month 2021

March 2021 - Rose City Constructions, Warwick QLD


As an early adopter of accessible housing and construction Adam Nielsen has also been a strong advocate of disability housing. In his early years with the Independent Builders Network Adam, supported in a mentoring role by Kevin Renwick undertook his first large scale commercial job in the construction of a new childcare centre.

In Warwick and its surrounds Adam has seen the opportunities that are on offer and is in the process of including disability housing into his range of product offerings as he is now qualified to undertake home modification for NDIS housing after completing his training.

Always looking at the opportunities on offer and being prepared to pivot his business in a changing environment Adam is the NDIS specialist of IBN.

On a side note, Adam is also becoming an expert in smoking meat with an array of smoking boxes and barbeques at his house. At a recent visit there were at least 5 with Adam suggesting that there will be another to be purchased.

We congratulate Adam for his ongoing support of the Independent Builders Network and congratulate him on winning the March builder of the month.

January 2021 - Kev Morris Builder Pty Ltd, Toowoomba QLD

‘Do it once, do it right’

This is the motto of the January Builder of the Month award winner Kev Morris.
As one of the first builders to embrace Adaptable Living, Kevin built the Award winning Sarah display in Toowoomba which is now generating a very good pipeline of work and enquiry. Kevin has concentrated on the downsizers and mature aged clients focusing on the advantages of the Adaptable Living model. 
A combination of social media through Facebook, magazines and local TV, Kevin is establishing himself as to the go to person when it comes building houses that accommodates the needs of those aging in process.
This display being a 4 bedroom home has been very popular getting local TV stations doing editorials as it seen as something that is needed and no one else is doing. Kevin is now getting calls for modified versions of the display with good enquiry for 3 bedroom design.
As an IBN member Kevin is a regular attendee at our Professional Development days and zone meetings, where his contributions are backed up by his years of experience. He is always happy to impart his knowledge and experience to any of the other IBN members.  

We thank Kevin for their ongoing support of the Independent Builders Network and congratulate them on winning this month’s builder of the month.
