Chris Lillico of Lillico Bricklaying, Ulverstone has the qualities for business success, as well as being an excellent employer for apprentices learning the trade.
Chris has an innovative approach to winning work. He recently converted two tilt-up jobs to concrete masonry blocks – Burnie hospital and the new Sorrell supermarket. This is a great example for the industry showing that it is possible to influence the usage of walling products for the benefit of brick manufacturers and bricklayers in Tasmania. We reported a similar story in Victoria last year in our blog column, where a successful quote against other walling materials led to a switch to bricks on a major job.
