Mr GOSLING (Solomon) (13:32): Over the weekend Master Builders Australia held their annual awards for national excellence in building and construction. I'm very pleased to report to the House that our NT apprentice of the year is also the Australian—the national—apprentice of the year, Darwin's own Rory Walker. Well done, Rory. Rory works as a builder at a Territory owned firm Sunbuild and he played a prominent role in the development of the boulevard plaza project in the 'Palmy' CBD. Well done to Rory and Sunbuild. It's an award that is well deserved and just rewards for the hard work put in by Rory and also Sunbuild.

Rory wasn't the only winner from the NT with Vanguard Homes taking the award for national alterations and additions under $200,000 and they were also a finalist in the Cbus National Medium Density Award. Well done Vanguard Homes. Other finalists included Michael Buckley from M&J Builders in the Toyota National Young Builder of the Year award, Killarney Homes, Captiv8 Homes, La Perouse Homes, McT Design and Construction, KTM Builders NT group, Halikos Group, Probuild NT, Sitzler Pty Ltd, Sunbuild and Hutchinson Builders. Congratulations again to Rory, Vanguard and all those finalists, and well done to everyone for showing once again that Territorians punch above their weight. Good on you.
