Marlborough, Nelson & West Coast Region’s top builds announced

A West Coast home has taken out this year’s Supreme Award in the Marlborough Nelson West Coast Registered Master Builders 2017 House of the Year competition. 

Tony Wilkins Builder Limited won five awards with the Punakaiki home, including the Marlborough Nelson West Coast Registered Master Builders 2017 Supreme House of the Year, a Gold Award and Category win for the Resene New Home up to $450,000 award. They were also awarded the Craftmanship Award and the Floor Pride Interior Style and Design Award for the same property. 

Judges said the winning House of the Year was a bespoke two-story bach which was an understated example of outstanding workmanship. 

“Hidden in a small clearing in the middle of the Punakaiki bush and surrounded by Nikau Palms and Tree ferns, this was not an easy build,” they said. 

“This architecturally-designed bach incorporated many design features and detailing that required forward planning and precision at every junction. Concealed structures, multiple claddings, externally sliding window joinery all added to the complexity of the build. 

“With outstanding attention to detail and workmanship, the builder has created an exceptional retreat for the owners to enjoy. It was a pleasure to have judged."

The results of the regional competition were revealed at a gala dinner on 28 July at the Marlborough Convention Centre. The winning builds were celebrated by Marlborough Nelson West Coast Registered Master Builders Association members and colleagues from the local construction industry.  

There were eight Gold Award winners from Marlborough, Nelson and West Coast 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.
