The CBR QLD team are experts in building, carpentry and construction, with over 100+ years of combined experience. Our talented team balances licenced carpenters with apprentices, as we believe in helping the next generation of contractors learn, grow and develop as builders.
Rob has worked with his family’s businesses in the UK and Hervey Bay since a young age, so it was a natural progression for him to create his own business pathway - progressing from being a sole trader for 10 years to creating his own company, CBR, in 2011. Rob’s passion for solving building solutions for his clients and providing a safe work environment for his team is at the core of CBR’s values.
Julie officially joined CBR part time in 2011, after a long career in administration and management in the UK. She has a passion for providing health and wellbeing for all our staff, which also extends to checking in on clients to ensure their needs are being met. Julie also looks after the accounts side of the business and mentors the office team in new processes and systems that allow CBR to provide outstanding customer service.
Chloe has lived in Hervey Bay her whole life, having previously worked in the property management sector. She enjoys camping, 4WDriving and outdoor activities. Chloe joined the team in March 2021 and is our first point of contact for our clients, suppliers, and team. She is our behind-the-scenes guru managing the preconstruction aspects of each job and ensuring our processes and functions run smoothly and efficiently with day-to-day activities in our job management system.

Wyatt originally joined CBR on work experience, and became an apprentice with us in January 2021. Wyatt loved the team environment at CBR and the support and encouragement that he received from us, and jumped at the chance of the Full-Time Carpentry Apprenticeship that was offered. Wyatt enjoys 4WDriving and Camping with friends and family on the weekends.
Harry has been completing ongoing work experience with CBR since December 2020. He was delighted when he was offered a school-based apprenticeship with CBR. Harry loves to go out on his boat on weekends fishing with friends as well as camping with family.
