About Us

McNeill Building


McNeill Building was founded in the Whitsundays by husband and wife team, Ross and Trish McNeill in 1991. Starting the business from the ground up, Ross has focussed on building a solid reputation as a quality construction company in the area. Throughout his building career, Ross has ALSO completed specialty training in design and estimating to ensure clients receive a one-stop-shop building experience that makes building their home a seamless process. Ross has over 30 years’ experience in the building and construction industry from building renovations, to homes, to luxury homes, to commercial jobs. Put simply, what Ross doesn’t know about building and construction isn’t worth knowing.

Area of operation

The base is the Whitsundays, Queensland and the primary area of operation is between Mackay and Townsville on the east coast of Queensland. However McNeill Building is currently due to commence work in Aspley, Brisbane in January for a valued client. For the right opportunities McNeill Building are willing to travel further, and with transportable accommodation work outside this immediate area is not an obstacle.

Training and Skills

With regard to staff McNeill Building are constantly seeking to upskill its employees and are committed to attending regular training sessions. In addition to this, directors also attend major industry information evenings to keep up-to-date on the latest innovations and industry requirements. McNeill Building take pride in training the next generation of carpenters and builders and presently have two apprentices working under the expert and experienced guidance of their builders. McNeill Building has also assisted existing employees obtaining tickets such as bobcat and excavator licenses. In addition to training its in-house staff, McNeill Building has also assisted B.E.S.T Pty Ltd by providing 160 hours of practical training experience for their staff.



This year McNeill Building was lucky enough to win the category for Best Individual Home in the $251,000-$300,000 bracket. This is a competitive bracket so winning it is a testament to the team of tradesmen, subcontractors and suppliers at McNeill Building. Receiving recognition for workmanship is an honour in itself but it also highlights the quality in the relationships built between the McNeill Building and its clients, who by choosing to build with McNeill Building make these awards possible.
