Sheldon receives the rising star award

A huge congratulations to Sheldon Powe-Hobbs for being awarded the Rising Star Award at the Master Builders Queensland 2023 Housing and Construction Awards. This recognition not only celebrates Sheldon's personal achievements but also highlights the collective effort, passion, and innovation of his entire team at Cairns Custom Bathrooms.

Hailing from Cairns, Sheldon's journey in the construction industry has been nothing short of inspiring. Through hard work, determination, and a deep commitment to quality craftsmanship, he has established himself as a 'rising star' in the field. His expertise in bathroom design and renovations has not only transformed spaces but also elevated the standards of excellence within the industry.

What sets Sheldon apart is his ability to fuse creativity with functionality, producing bathrooms that are not only aesthetically pleasing but also tailored to the unique needs and preferences of each client. His dedication to delivering top-notch solutions has earned him a reputation as a trusted name in the field.

While the Rising Star Award bears Sheldon's name, he is quick to acknowledge that his accomplishments are the result of a collaborative effort. In his own words, "I know it says rising star but it’s the team, my family, and business coach. There is a lot that goes into it." This humility underscores his belief in the power of teamwork and mentorship, both of which have played a pivotal role in his journey.

Sheldon's commitment to excellence extends beyond his current achievements. With a clear vision for the future, he is expanding his team to ensure that his legacy of quality craftsmanship and innovation continues to thrive. Currently managing one apprentice, SRA Industry Consultant, Nathan Dwight, is actively helping Sheldon find another apprentice and a trade qualified employee to join his ranks. This investment in the next generation of skilled professionals underscores his dedication to nurturing talent and driving the industry forward.
