North has also entered a submission for Commercial Apprentice of the Year, Brady Casey, and also for Safework Excellence in Work Health & Safety Award.  

“The MBA Awards are a great opportunity not only to showcase our projects and celebrate our hard work with colleagues, but also to commend partners and competitors alike for their success,” expressed Matthew Cook, North Managing Director. “This kind of industry-wide recognition of local and regional projects raises the profile of quality players in construction and we’re honoured to have been part of these awards through our history.” 

North is making in-roads in transforming the construction industry by doing business differently. A genuinely values-based business, combined with a corporate commitment to the personal and professional development of its people, North has created a culture that drives excellence and yet is respectful and committed to strong relationships among all stakeholders.  

Cook explained, “We are all about building with trust and that extends to our employees, subcontractors, and clients. For subcontractors, this translates as fair treatment, respect, understanding and paying on time. Most of North’s suppliers and subcontractors have worked with us extensively.  

“For clients, trust is being transparent, consistent, and particularly proactive in the discussions around owning our responsibilities. Here, we have repeat business clients that have worked closely with North for more than 15 years.  

“For our staff, trust is approachability, openness, support, and great options in the business for your career direction. This translates to a fantastic company culture, stability and low staff turnover. As a result, we were awarded Australian Medium Employer of the Year at the 2018 Australian Training Awards.” 

Founded in 1987, North is the largest locally owned and operated commercial construction business on the Central Coast. Over the past 30 years, and with offices in Tuggerah and Newcastle, North has grown to become one of the most trusted builders throughout the Central Coast, Hunter Valley and Newcastle regions.  

In partnering with North, you are ‘BUILDING WITH TRUST.’
