This is an incredible achievement from a company based in Batemans Bay to take out these major awards, which is a result of many years building a great team of apprentices, tradesman & managers with Neil Smith, of Bay & Coast Metal Roofing saying the honour was “huge”.
“We thought we’d be in the running for one, because we had a project that won the Australian Steel award,” he said.
“Then we picked up three major awards and apprentice of the year. To pick up these national awards is pretty prestigious.”
Mr Smith said the team was drawn to unusual projects.
“We take on different projects, things other people don’t like to do,” he said.
“We love it, we thrive on the challenge, and it keeps us sharp.”
