National Recognition For Two IBN Members

The Darling Downs IBN Members Kev Morris from Toowoomba and Adam Nielsen from Warwick recently took out major awards at the Independent Builders Network Annual Conference held at Tweed Heads.


It speaks volumes for the strength and skillset that our own Darling Downs’ local Builders with the Independent Builders Network recently took out two National Awards beating over 100-other Builders in their respective fields!


The Independent Builders Network recently held their Annual Conference at Tweed Heads where Members get together from the five states that they are represented and spend time learning and developing skills and networking with like-minded Building professionals who are from similar towns albeit all over the country.  This year’s focus was a launch on the new IBN Adaptable Living range of homes which allows for IBN standard designs to go through customisation in order to meet Liveable Housing Guidelines standards and this provides IBN with a wonderful opportunity to service the needs for NDIS type construction through Regional Australia.


For his ongoing commitment to professionalism, networking with other builders and following the IBN brand ethos of Sincerity, Excitement, Competence, Sophistication and Ruggedness; Kev Morris of Toowoomba was awarded the very special Chairman’s Award from IBN Chairman, Kevin Renwick OAM.  Kev has also embarked on an ambitious project with his very own Silver-level Adaptable Living display home which is due to open in early 2019.  Kev was acknowledged from the very top to his dedication to the brand as well as supporting other Members which is a key component of the network which allows non-competitive builders to share ideas, problem solve and help each other out which certainly is the Aussie Way.


From Warwick, Adam Nielson of Rose City Constructions on top of his National Builder of the Month Award from May this year, also took out Best First Year Member from the field of over 30-Builders who qualified for the award and who came from larger cities such as Brisbane, Melbourne and the Gold Coast and itself was a massive coup for the Darling Downs.  The IBN had taken in to account Adam’s savvy skillset in combining national purchasing deals with keeping on local tradespeople to make Rose City competitive with the mass-marketed volume builders from out of town and keep locals employed and providing quality control whilst keeping competitive pricing utilising the 120+ floor plans that IBN provides.  Learning from the IBN Management, Adam was also able to enhance his negotiation skills with land developers which also enabled Rose City to promote affordable house and land packages.
