A classic family business, Brady Contracting was established in 2012 by Scott Brady, his father Larry and his three brothers. “This can be good and bad at times….. Mostly good!” Scott tells us. Including office staff and apprentices, they now employ a total of 40 people.
Brady Contracting service Queensland-wide and are happy to throw a few rods on the ute if work in Cape York was to arise.
What is your favorite thing about working in the construction industry?
Every day is different! No two projects have ever been the same, it is a constant change and challenge. I enjoy walking away from a job that may have been challenging knowing that I have learnt something new and also completed to the highest of standards.
What other projects have you worked alongside Woollam Constructions on?
We have worked together on a number of projects including Southside Memorial Pool (Rockhampton), Rockhampton Girls Grammar School, Ozcare Chermside (Brisbane) and are currently working on the Ozcare facility in Hervey Bay.
What is the worst building experience that happened to you?
I can’t say I have had a particular bad experience happen over the years.
What’s been your best building experience?
I would have to say the last 4 years have been a highlight for me. We started off as a crew of 5 in Moranbah on a block of units. There have been plenty of ups and downs but when I look back at it now, I’m pretty proud of what we have achieved in 4 years. Driving around different suburbs with the kids pointing out which projects we are working on or have completed.
If you could change one thing about the industry, what would it be?
Better working relationships.
As much as you love the trade, if you could work in any other industry, what would your dream job be?
Professional Fisherman, Hunter.
What do you wish contractors could do better?
Listen!!!! It can be hard for contractor’s onsite at times, having to deal with all other trades trying to meet deadlines. But all in all I think we have a pretty good bunch at the moment.
