Accuplumb won the QLeave Commercial and Industrial Technical Award at the 2021 Plumbing and Gas Industry Awards, held on Friday 12 November at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre. Their innovative installation of a specified vacuum drainage system at Spicers’ isolated bush camp retreat by Vacuum Toilets Australia impressed the judges and saw them take home this prestigious award.

The project design requirements included limited water usage for all amenities as the site generated its own power and water supplies due to its remote location. The site location was rugged and challenging and required innovative sanitary solutions that used little water because of the environmental limitations. This project required Accuplumb to employ multiple innovations in plumbing and focus on sustainability and the environment.

Hosted by Master Plumbers’ Association of Queensland (MPAQ) in partnership with Event Partner Reliance Worldwide Corporate (RWC), the Plumbing and Gas Industry Awards aim to highlight the hard work and dedication invested into the industry by apprentices, plumbers, gasfitters, hydraulic consultants and other industry individuals.

This year, the sold-out event recognised individuals and companies in 16 award categories, and hosted VIPs including the Hon. Mick de Brenni MP, Minister for Energy, Renewables and Hydrogen and Minister for Public Works and Procurement of Queensland, the Hon. Di Farmer, Minister for Employment and Small Business and Minister for Training and Skills Development, the Hon. Scott Stewart, Minister for Resources, Tim Mander, Shadow Minister for Housing and Public Works and Shadow Minister for Sports and Racing, and Gary O’Halloran, State Secretary of the Plumbing and Pipe Trades Union Queensland.
