The 2017 Ric New Awards nominations are now open!

Nominations for the Ric New Awards are now open!

With legendary pioneering spirit, Gerry and Ric New fired their first brick from a small brickworks in Middle Swan, called Midland Brick. Their practical, hands-on approach saw many new innovations and products that are still part of WA's building industry today.

70 years on from that first brick, we are still passionate about innovation, creativity and entrepreneurial flair - which is why we have partnered with Master Builders to present the 2017 Ric New Rising Star Award and the 2017 Ric New Medal for Excellence.
