Crafting a Community of Care Over Two Decades

McAlister & Burford


McAlister & Burford are the commercial paint, waterproofing and resin flooring specialists trusted with the interior/exterior painting, wallpapering and exterior rendering for the Benevolent Living Retirement Village.

The team have been the site’s painting and rendering specialists of choice for the last 20 years.

“This project is very special to us as we have been lucky enough to have worked on every building of this site throughout the last two decades,” said McAlister & Burford Managing Director, Matt McAlister.

“It really is a marquee project for us. Not only is this a project that is going up within our own community, it’s one of the largest projects to go up in the region in many years.”

Between the two buildings, we have painted over 27,500m2 of walls and ceilings, rendered over 2,800m2 and painted 3,500m2 of cladding. During peak times, McAlister & Burford had up to 15 Trade Painters, Solid Plasterers and Apprentices on-site working on the various elements of the project.

The team began work on the first of two buildings in November 2020 and were faced with the impact of COVID-19 and the particularly heavy restrictions of working within an aged care facility. The team completed work on the building in mid-2021 before beginning six months of painting and rendering on the second building in June 2023.

Servicing central Queensland, the team pride themselves on their expert knowledge, unparalleled experience and dedication to excellence and quality craftsmanship.

McAlister & Burford recently completed a three-year-long project installing epoxy flooring and painting 22 buildings within the Capricorn Correctional Centre.

Current projects include waterproofing 30 live fire buildings in Shoal Water Bay, multiple residential and NDIS apartment buildings and the Fitzroy Community Hospice project.
