Auckland Region’s top builds announced 5 Aug 2017

Auckland Region’s top builds announced

A Waiheke home and a Grey Lynn renovation have taken out announced as this year’s Supreme Awards in the Auckland Registered Master Builders 2017 House of the Year competition. 

Pitch Construction Limited won four regional awards with the Waiheke home, including the Auckland Registered Master Builders 2017 Supreme House of the Year, a Gold Award and Category win for the New Home over $2 million Award. The company was also awarded the Outdoor Living Award for the same property.

Broswick Builders Limited was awarded the Auckland Registered Master Builders 2017 Supreme Renovation of the Year, a Gold Award and Category win for the Renovation Award over $1 million. They were also awarded the Craftmanship Award and the Sustainable Home Award. 

Judges called the winning House of the Year a work of art. 

“With outstanding craftsmanship and exceptional finishing, this cliff top home – built on a very difficult and narrow site – is a place to relax and enjoy,” they said.
“The seamless connection between indoor and outdoor living morph together, presented with a variety of materials and colour. This provides a superb backdrop to the finishing touches by a very discerning owner.

“The home is determined by the central outdoor living, covered courtyard. This contains an open fire, outdoor dining and lounge areas, BBQ, and swimming pool, that separates the guest pavilion from the main living pavilion. The views from these areas is to die for.

“With attention to detail in every area of the home, it was quite simply faultless, and a deserving winner.”

Judges said the winning renovation was a traditional Grey Lynn cottage located close to the street, and gives little away to what’s happened behind.
“Both old and knew blend in an interesting way making the home full of surprises,” they said.

“Exquisite detailing both inside and out, a mix of quality materials, along with exposing some of the structure internally, clearly shows everything has been thought through and executed perfectly. 

 “A new master suite, a large kitchen, living, and dining area make this a very comfortable home. 
“A joy to inspect.”

The results of the regional competition were revealed at a gala dinner on 5 August at SKYCITY. The winning builds were celebrated by members of the Auckland Registered Master Builders Association and members of the local construction industry.  

There were 32 Gold Award winners from the Auckland region, which will now be judged against Gold Award winners from around the country to find the National Gold Reserve finalists.

National category winners and the Registered Master Builders Supreme Awards for House of the Year and Renovation of the Year will be announced at a gala dinner on 25 November at SKYCITY in Auckland. 

The Awards are made possible through the support of PlaceMakers, Master Build Services, GIB, Nulook, CARTERS, Plumbing World, Resene and Bunnings Trade.

About the Registered Master Builders 2017 House of the Year
The competition is divided into two parts – the first is at a regional level, the second at a national level. Gold, Silver and Bronze Award winners are determined using a points-based system. These award-winners are announced at 10 regional events held throughout New Zealand during July and August.
The top local Gold Award winners become Gold Reserve National Finalists. The national finalists are then re-judged by a panel of judges who determine the overall national winners, which are announced at the National event in Auckland on 25 November.
