In review...

Has six months really past by since the last issue? It has been a wet winter for sure and with spells of warm sunny days it seems to have reflected the current building industry ups and downs. Sport and politics took the front pages and most of us are now over supplements sagas, Buddy’s deal, and the supposedly one horse political race that was probably closer in the end than most had imagined. And speaking of horse races - Melbourne Cup is almost upon us. Gamble responsibly! 

Our ever upbeat business outlook seems to be holding firm though we are looking to the horizon with some caution. There are sure to be interesting times ahead with some key projects in the wind that we hope will come to life soon.
