MBA Book

The Master Builders that Built Canberra
The Master Builders that Built Canberra was published to commemorate Canberra's Centenary. 

Designed as a beautifully presented, hard-cover book exploring the history of the Master Builders Association of the ACT, through that window it captures many of the stories of the construction of Canberra, while reflecting upon the contribution of the building industry to the national capital over the past 100 years.  The publication draws on over forty interviews with Canberra builders and Master Builder members and is complimented by photos that tell the story of a city still under construction.

Throughout this book there is a recurring theme of leadership, with many stories of Presidents, Executive Directors and members of the organisation taking the lead in overcoming hardships, representing the industry or supporting the Canberra community.  There are also many stories demonstrating the strong mateship, support, and sense of community that has dominated this industry throughout the construction of Canberra.
