August 2022


We’re getting hotter as we head up North! It was all smiles for our team at the Master Builders Mackay & Whitsunday Housing and Construction Awards last Saturday night. Woollam project, Catherine McAuley College came out on top in the ‘Education Facilities over $10m’ category before being crowned Regional Project of the Year 2022.

Built on the site formerly known as the iconic Mackay Sugar Research Institute, the $16.8m secondary catholic school included the refurbishment and fit out of three heritage listed buildings, a new three-level science building, a new sports building with basketball courts and a football field. This is the project’s second and third win, after previously receiving the major prize at the 2022 Mackay Heritage Awards earlier this year.

Congratulations to our dedicated local partners who worked tirelessly with us to bring this historic icon into its new, glorious chapter.
