University of Canberra
Master Builders ACT and the University of Canberra have a long partnership of developing education for the buiding and construction industry. Below are some initiatives that we have partnered together for.
Training and Education Policy
Recently a policy document was developed in conjunction with the MBA and the University of Canberra. This document outlines goals and requirements fot the industry to further develop the standard of education to young builders in the industry. This education and training policy paper is designed to focus, collaborate and engage industry, government and community stakeholders on the critical debate and actions required to successfully deliver vital training and continuing professional development for the ACT building and construction industry.

Building and construction waste materials: REDUCE, REUSE AND RECYCLE
Opportunities and strategies for the Capital region
In December 2013 Canberra Business Council, through its Sustainability Special Interest Group, led a project which commissioned the University of Canberra to undertake research into residential construction, renovation and demolition (C&D) waste and recycling activity in the Capital Region. Canberra Business Council was joined in this project by the South East Regional Organisation of Councils (SERROC), the ACT Master Builders Association (MBA), ACT NOWaste, Colin Stewart Architects, Easycare Landscapes, the ACT Land Development Agency, and the Rock Development Group. The research proponents together represent the business sector, the architecture, landscape architecture, building and construction industries and the local government areas which constitute the Capital Region.
