Plastering Specialists Brisbane

CRA Constructions is an Australian owned and run family business, based in Mcdowall, Brisbane. Our team services across South East Queensland, from the Gold Coast to the Sunshine Coast, and sometimes even regional QLD.
We pretty much do everything from a 600 x 600 plaster patch repair through to a 3000sqm new build plastering project. Wall and ceiling linings, Venetian plaster, residential tidy ups, repairs, high end renovations, new builds – we can even help with some other work outside of plastering (just ask).


We pride ourselves on:

  • High-quality workmanship
  • Reliable & timely service
  • Affordable pricing
  • Genuine, hard-working, trustworthy tradespeople

Who we are

Owned by husband and wife team, Chris & Kim Allen, the “CRA” in our name is from Chris’s initials (Christopher Russell Allen).

We’re a close-knit crew who take pride in our work, and everyone in our team is like family.

Our team consists of a dynamic combination of master plasterers, apprentices, admin staff and subcontractors (when needed), which means we can get projects moving quickly and complete them efficiently.

Everyone has different specialties and skills that allow us to work really well as a unit and excel at a variety of projects, and all our guys can give advice or solutions while on the job, which clients love!

How it started

Chris started as a mature age apprentice over 14 years ago. When he became a qualified plasterer he decided to take the leap and start his own business, which he’s been doing for the last 14 years. A few different partnerships later, we founded CRA Construction. We’re close to our team and many of the staff working for us now have been with us for a long time – Jacob, Tran, Isaac & Dean for nearly 7+ years!

The CRA difference

We’ve built a reputation for being reliable, professional, and efficient and take pride in upholding that title. Our attention to detail is second to none and we make sure to keep clear communication going throughout every job. We strive to ensure that deadlines are met, to the point where if we ever fall behind, even Kim will jump on the tools to help out. If we say we’ll be there, we will.

If you need plastering specialists for your next renovation, new home build, or domestic repair job, simply get in touch.

Chris and his team completed plastering work for us in May 2019 as part of a major renovation at our home. Their work was excellent, they took their time to get the great level of finish on our raked ceiling with exposed beams, and have created a beautiful feature out of this. They were punctual, friendly, communicated clearly, cleaned up as they worked and provided excellent value for money. We’ll be getting them back for any further work that’s need doing, and highly recommend them!
