Our Team

Blanco Building was formed by proud born and raised North Queensland couple Glenn and Melanie Blanco. Together with our design, administration and project management teams and our licensed construction crews, we have a wealth of knowledge and experience to oversee your project whatever your specific needs, purpose and budget.

Blanco Building is small enough to give our clients old-fashioned, personalised customer service, but our team consists of the industry’s top people and we strive for the highest standards in all that we do.  

Whether your project is for commercial, industrial, government or rural purposes, we can offer you all the services you need to design, construct and fitout your project all under the one roof.  We have experts in drafting, project management, town planning, community engagement, quantity surveying, marketing and interior design.  We are multi-award winning builders who only use licensed builders to oversee our projects.  As a result, we have many satisfied customers across regional Queensland.

Glenn Blanco

Born and raised on a cane farm near Ingham, Glenn is a passionate country kid. Glenn is an experienced QBCC licensed builder with first-class project management and organisational skills. Glenn has over 20 years’ experience on the tools in the building industry and is personally involved with every Blanco Building project from the design, construct and fit out stages. His organisational and negotiation skills ensure projects are delivered on time and on budget. Glenn has high standards of workmanship and commands the same first-class expectations from his build crews. Being a dedicated small business owner with a young family, Glenn doesn’t have much spare time to relax, but like many North Queenslanders he enjoys fishing and backing the Cowboys.


Melanie Blanco

Melanie is an award-winning journalist and corporate communications/marketing professional with over 20 years’ experience both in Australia and the United Kingdom. She has worked in management roles in the private and corporate sectors as well as Federal, State and Local Government.
