Individual Memberships

We provide a number of options for those who wish to become an individual member.  Whether just starting out in your career as an apprentice, student in construction, a qualified craftsman or professional working in the industry; our range of individual members gives you the opportunity to be a part of our organisation. 

Also important to us is recognising outstanding service among our membership as well as not losing our long time members who’ve come to the end of their career in business and wish to remain in touch with the industry, hence our Fellow, Life Member and Retired categories.

Please note: Individual membership is not available to any person who enters into building contracts.
