Master Builders Association Newcastle started in 1874
We have celebrated over 140 years – in fact we’re the second oldest MBA in Australia!
We are one of the nine autonomous State and Territory MBA’s across Australia. This is largely because the Hunter is a significant and unique region within Australia which is recognised and supported at all levels of Government.
Master Builders’ Association is dedicated to helping and protecting its members through the extensive range of services provided. The general public, Councils and Governments seek the MBA’s opinion and expertise on any matter relating to the Building & Construction Industry in this region.
MBA is constantly changing to meet the dynamic needs and expectations placed upon it. The business community and the general public depend upon it. MBA’s core services include Industrial Relations, Occupational Health and Safety advice, Housing Matters, Training & Education and we are the largest Building Industry employer of apprentices in the region.
These services are complimented by discounts for members from a wide ranging business alliance partnership.
There are around 29,000 building industry employees in this region and our industry makes up 10% of the total Hunter’s workforce.
With over 900 member companies, Master Builders’ is the market leader in both the Housing and Commercial areas of the building industry. Members include commercial builders, housing builders, subcontractors, suppliers and professionals. Almost 95% of all commercial builders in the region are members, as are the overwhelming majority of housing builders.
We have several special interest groups such as MBA Kitchens & Bathrooms, and Women in Building & Associated Services, plus the largest social golf and bowls club in the region.
