Over the years, the Gold Coast and Brisbane construction market has seen a lot of volatility with a constant turnover of contractors coming during the boom times, and disappearing when the market slows. So, a successful career spanning more than 27 years is a rare achievement.

Gridline Plastering’s Darren Murphy can boast just that. After 17 years as a foreman in the trade, he founded Gridline Plastering in 2007, and the company has now established itself as one of the leading Plaster Specialists in the Gold Coast and Brisbane region.
