MR WALL (Brindabella) (6.04): I rise this evening to pay tribute to the finalists and the winners of the 2013 Master Builders and Cbus excellence in building awards. The awards are a positive highlight of the year for the building and construction industry in the ACT, which continues to meet ongoing challenges and provide significant opportunities for employment and economic growth for our city. The awards not only showcase some of the excellence that is achieved through the building industry locally, but also encourages other companies to lift the bar in their future projects.
I wish to congratulate the following individuals and business award winners: Jordan Lohse for the apprentice of the year; Luke Manenica for cadet of the year and Peter Jamieson for the University of Canberra student of the year.
