Your Industry. Your Magazine.


Written by people in the industry, for people in the industry, On the Surface is the AWCI’s official magazine. It is designed and developed to educate and inform members.

With On the Surface, you can stay up-to-date on technical and industry issues, innovations in technology and tools, changes in Australian Standards, new government initiatives, Workplace Health and Safety requirements, and legislative changes.

Each edition of the magazine includes a range of technical information as well, with members offered the opportunity to submit questions for our regular column: Ask the Panel. Questions can be on the Australian Standards, troubleshooting, trade responsibilities, fire rating and lining, glancing light, and even contract issues.

Published quarterly and distributed to our broad database of industry members across both Australia and New Zealand, On The Surface magazine is one of the most valuable sources of information for contractors, sub-contractors, suppliers, and anyone working in the wall and ceiling industries.
