Manufacturer CSR is the official supplier of building products for Channel 9’s The Block 2011.

The reality show will see a number of CSR’s brands being used together to build four innovative new homes in Melbourne.

The Block sees four couples compete against each other to renovate a property and sell it at auction, the winner determined by the highest price above reserve on auction day. It’s broadcast 5-nights-a week on the Nine Network.

The show is in its fourth season and is set in the suburb of Richmond, Victoria.

As the only building products supplier, CSR has contributed Gyprock plasterboard and compounds, Bradford Insulation, Edmonds Ventilation and the new Designer Series external walling product from Cemintel Fibre Cement to the series.

CEO of CSR, Rob Sindel, comments: It’s a fantastic opportunity for us to showcase some of our brands and demonstrate how our products can effectively be used together for renovation building.”
