New Zealand’s top 100 home builds announced

One hundred of the best home builds in New Zealand have been named as National Gold Reserve Finalists in the Registered Master Builders 2017 House of the Year competition.

More than 370 new builds and renovations across the country were assessed by an expert panel of judges, with regional award-winners announced at ten events during July and August.

Registered Master Builders Association chief executive David Kelly says the House of the Year competition has been setting the standard of what is possible in the construction industry for more than 25 years.

“The recent building boom in New Zealand has resulted in a changing housing market which demands innovation. For House of the Year to remain as the prominent house building competition, this year it has evolved to reflect the changing landscape,” he said.

“The introduction of two new categories, one for multi-units such as apartments, and one for volume and group housing, demonstrates how our homes and the way we are building are evolving in New Zealand.

“The focus of our builders remains the same – on achieving the highest quality across all house builds.

“All of the Gold Reserve National Finalists have consistently demonstrated impeccable craftmanship and attention to detail. These top 100 builds show the diversity of what can be achieved in a range of price categories - from cost effective builds and renovations to luxury home builds.

“One of the award-winning homes only measures 80m2 and is isolated in the middle of the Punakaiki bush, requiring outstanding workmanship and skill. Another build uses locally sourced schist stone to create a home that seamlessly blends into Queenstown hillside.”

The Gold Reserve National Finalists represent the top entrants from this year’s regional competitions, which were held in July and August. They will now be re-judged by the national judging panel to find the National Supreme House of the Year and National Supreme Renovation of the Year.

Finalists can also win one of the 14 National category awards, as well as separate awards for four lifestyle categories – outdoor living, kitchen, bathroom and sustainability.

National winners will be announced at a gala dinner in Auckland on Saturday 25 November.

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