RISE Award

RISE Award









The RISE Award recognises an individual who displays Resilience, Inspiration, Skill and Endurance in the building and construction industry, and will be awarded for the first time at the 2023 Master Builders SA Building Excellence Awards.

This Award is in honour of the late John Indrizzi, Managing Director of Exclusive Commercial Linings and valued member of the Master Builders Association in Perth and South Australia, who encapsulated these qualities and more throughout his inspiring career.

John established Exclusive Commercial Linings in 2010, building it from a small Perth based business to a multimillion-dollar company operating over numerous states. His ability to overcome adversity when faced with challenges was one of his many strengths.

John started his first business ‘Essex Industry’ at the ripe age of 26 years, and whilst it was successful for many years, it faced financial hardship and had to close its doors. However, John persevered, drawing on his tenacity and resilience, and found success with Exclusive Commercial Linings, a business that continues to service the building and construction industry today.

It is no secret that working in the building and construction industry can be a hard slog, much of one’s time is spent absorbed by programs and deadlines. Managers and leaders within the industry are often faced with the added pressures and greater responsibility of managing people. The prevalence of poor mental health is alarming.

The RISE Award will recognise an individual who has experienced hardship in their role within the industry and has demonstrated their ability to overcome this. A person who continues to strive for excellence despite the setbacks.

What John accomplished in his 46 young years is admirable and we are looking to honour his memory by rewarding an individual who demonstrates the same qualities he demonstrated throughout his life; Resilience, Inspiration, Skill and Endurance.

In addition to recognising this individual, Exclusive Commercial Linings will be donating $2,500 to Beyond Blue and $2,500 to MATES in Construction, so that all people in Australia can achieve their best possible mental health.

“Shoot for the moon and if you miss,
you’ll land amongst the stars.”
