Southern Region’s top builds announced

Southern Region’s top builds announced

A Queenstown home has been announced as this year’s finest Southern home, winning the Supreme Award in the Southern Registered Master Builders 2016 House of the Year competition.


M & S Construction Limited won four regional awards with the Queenstown home, including the Southern Registered Master Builders 2016 Supreme House of the Year, a Gold Award and Category win for the New Home over $2 million Award, and the Craftsmanship Award.


Judges called this a complicated project completed with total dedication and accuracy from all involved.


“This home is anchored on the side of the hill, held up by retaining walls looking over Frankton Arm. The build was very complex, featuring an intricate multi-level steel structure to support flying curved sail rooves that float out into mid-air.


“With the Cedar Tongue & Groove fixed to the rooves, the use of multi claddings and a house design with minimal 90 degree corners, attention to accuracy showed in every detail.


“This challenging build created a stunning home for the owners to be proud of.”


The results of the regional competition were revealed at a gala dinner on 9 July at the Dunedin Town Hall. The winning builds were celebrated by members of the Southern Registered Master Builders Association and members of the local construction industry.


There were 10 Gold Award winners from Southland 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 the 2016 House of the Year and Renovation of the Year will be announced at a gala dinner on 26 November at The Langham in Auckland.


The Awards are made possible through the support of PlaceMakers, Master Build Services, GIB, Nulook, Future-Proof Building, Carters, Plumbing World, Resene and Bunnings Trade.

About the Registered Master Builders 2016 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 26 November.
