May/June Industry Update from our Director Colin Brewer

RBN Newsletter

May/June 2020

G’day Mates,

With Building and Construction being declared an essential industry, most of us have been fortunate to have continued working through Covid-19, whilst many of our family & friends outside our Industry have been stood down or lost their jobs.

The outlook for the Building Industry is mixed with a downturn in new home builds forecast as a result of job losses and low immigration, but on the positive side, massive first home buyer grants are being touted and both Federal and State Governments are committed to massive spending on “shovel ready” smaller projects.

The RBN Team have been continuing to work hard at keeping the wheels in motion and growing the offering out to you, our Mates. The free on-line webinars covering topics such as business coaching, insurance, contracts and our Selections process to mention a few, have been well received, and provided RBN mates with not only great advice but a good connection with other mates during the lock-down period.

The reputation of RBN is growing and more Builder and Supplier Mates are joining the network weekly.  We are encouraged that RBN is being recognised as a genuine business partner and support to the small to medium size builder.

Each RBN team member & supplier mate is committed to supporting you with better service, advice, product & price than you could achieve by yourself. We encourage and challenge you to test us. Last month a great Mate saved $5k from using RBN Bowens pricing. (straight boost to the bottom line!)

As restrictions are gradually lifted, things will not be identical to pre-Covid-19, but we will adapt and accept a “new normal”. One aspect that has and will not change is the need and value of caring for family and Mates.

Please continue to take care of yourselves and your families.

Cheers

Colin Brewer
